Pop Up Dinner #4
Temptation in THE GARDEN OF EDEN
This pop-up dinner was a pleasure for all the senses. 


By Stefan Kugler and vegan chef Nü|Bites created a four-course meal of dishes combining traditional techniques with superfoods- the medicine of the future. 


Italian inspired cuisine 

Each dish was created with handmade produce, selected herbs, and oils. The chefs used earthy vegetables such as pickled pink beetroot, marinated carrot salmon, and fried chanterelles. The menu was created with the intention of reviving traditional cooking techniques of making every single ingredient from scratch. 

The nature of our lives has us in constant haste. Our modern lives demand practicality that is often imposed on the way we cook and the way we eat. This pop-up dinner invited us all to slow down and reconnect to the ritual of cooking through the traditional ways of consuming and celebrating food.

It was an absolute pleasure to slow down and capture these moments. Thank you @gemello_veganpizzaberlin and @nu_bites for the flavors and textures that have blasted colors through our senses

UY Studio’s Pop-up dinner comes from a personal tradition practiced by founders Idan Gilony and Fanny Lawaetz that predates the studio itself. Idan and Fanny have always hosted Sunday brunches and themed dinner parties, gathering food lovers and chefs alike around their table for savoury dishes. The tradition continued on into UY Studio’s atelier, where every Friday, a warm meal is cooked to be enjoyed by the interns and staff members. 

UY’s around the table culture has always had a fabulous flair and style to it. The tradition, true to its founders, mirrors their aesthetic and what is now known as UY Studio. This ongoing tradition started expanding, including more people from the label's growing community. This inspired the founders to share their dining traditions and engage the city’s community at large. 

The Pop Up dinner was then initiated during the Fall of 2019 when it opened its doors to the public.

The community event is a fine-dining experience with different twists and flavours. Each edition introduces a new Chef and a different cuisine. UY Studio’s open work space is transformed into an open kitchen space seating up to 25 guests. The open space allows the guests to watch the Chefs in their element as they create each dish and its presentation, rendering it a front row seat experience of the Chef’s personal food language. 

The main intention behind this event is community, to curate an intimate experience combining all senses and celebrating the finer things in life: good food and good company. It breaks the barriers between client and business and introduces a more personal dynamic between the two. Guests are encouraged to leave their expectations behind and come in with an open mind for this unforgettable social experience.
