So, A Fine Dining Pop-Up Restaurant Is Opening On Mount Everest

The phrase “this is my Everest” has always seemed a little trite – until now, as one world-famous chef has taken the saying seriously. Ex Noma chef James Sharman is opening up a temporary restaurant on Mount Everest as part of a world tour of pop-up restaurants he’s embarked on.

Sharman’s One Star House Party series will see him hosting pop-up dinners in 20 countries over 20 months. He generally spends three weeks planning and building a restaurant, and one week serving food in each respective location, with an emphasis on being true to the region the restaurant sets up in. Indeed, Sharman is intending on serving an authentic Nepalese menu for the Everest location.

There are 15 places available on the One Star Hour Party Nepal trek, with the main qualifier being your ability to actually make it to Everest Base Camp where the meal will be served. The experience will cost just under $1400AUD which includes the 14 day trek, Sharman’s meal, and basic necessities.

The world’s tallest mountain will be the fourth location on this world tour after successful ventures in Beijing, Ho Chi Minh City, and Bangkok. What’s next? Space?! Is he going to outer space?! No, but we do know that he will be setting up more temporary restaurants in Reykjavik, Buenos Aires and in our own natural jewel Tasmania.
