This July, london based creative hub Carousel will be bringing their open kitchen ethos to St Ives for a one-off weekend of cooking, creativity and art with Swedish-Japanese chef Carl Ishizaki of Stockholm’s Michelin-starred Sushi Sho.
Using the finest local seafood and produce, Carl will collaborate with Tate St Ives Head Chef Fraser Bruce and the Carousel team to create a unique Cornish-inspired sushi experience.
Half-Swedish, half-Japanese, Carl has earned a cult following in Stockholm for his daily-changing omakase tasting menus of beautifully crafted Japanese cooking, prepared with the freshest local ingredients and an itamae’s touch. Carl’s twelve-seater, hole-in-the-wall restaurant was awarded its first Michelin earlier in 2016 and continues to delight critics and diners alike with its laid back style and its winning mix of tsumami (‘drinking snacks’) and nigiri.
In 2017, Tate Modern and Carousel joined forces to deliver 3 gastronomic weekends in the Level 9 restaurant from a roster of talented international chefs. A year on, there is no better location than Tate St Ives to continue this collaboration of food and art.
