‘THE collective’ successfully organised a pop-up dinner event recently in the hopes of promoting local cooks and chefs while engaging the local community to develop a bond over a slew of healthy dishes.
Among the local food creatives during the night were The Energy Kitchen, Hip and Healthy, Pandachu and Pronto with each chef working on different dishes to create a four-course menu featuring healthy, conceptual food.
One of the organisers, Shinny in an interview with the Bulletin, said that the whole idea behind the pop-up dinner was “to bring creative experiences to Brunei and build a better connected community. We hope the pop-up dinners inspire people to get creative with food at home.”
This is the second pop-up dinner event organised by ‘the collective’ with each pop-up dinner being slightly different. “We teamed up with The Energy Kitchen, Hip and Healthy, Pandachu and Pronto because eating healthy is something that’s really relevant right now but still hasn’t got that mainstream awareness,” she added.
Among the dishes prepared include the local ‘Umai’ (Asian ceviche), buckwheat pumpkin ravioli, cashew crusted baked chicken breast with coconut cauliflower ‘rice’ (healthy version of Nasi lemak) and complemented with mouth-watering desserts.
In the past, ‘the collective’ have collaborated with other local bodies with a broad range of projects, and currently, it has many more different projects in the pipeline. To get up-to-date with future events, follow ‘thecollectiveartevents’ on Instagram.
