The group of four chefs, including Indian chef Sanjay Thakur, will be setting off on an eight day trek from the town of Lukla, Nepal at the end of May, foraging all the way – and they’re looking for 10 brave diners to join them!
Famous Indian Chef Vineet Bhatia is going to host this event. The trek will finish in a seven course fine adventurous dinner with wines at Everest Base Camp, cooked with the foods they find. The project, entitled Triyagyoni, is intended to raise awareness of sustainability issues and highlight local ingredients and terroir.
Much of the food will be cooked sous vide according to sources, and the dining area and furniture will be designed to ensure no trace is left on the mountain, with all money raised going to local charities.
Diners will have the choice of completing the entire outward journey on foot, roughly six hours a day of trekking, or to travel some or all of the way by helicopter. The return journey will be made by helicopter.
Tickets cost is $5600, which includes all flights, accommodation and meals. Enquiries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
