For the November edition of Taste Dining Experiences presented by Diners Club, one of New York’s hottest young chefs is en route to Australia headed straight for Sydney’s Long Chim. It’s there that Mission Chinese founder Danny Bowien will join forces with lauded Thai chef David Thompson for a special one-night-only event that’s not to be missed by Sydney foodies.
On November 19 at Long Chim Sydney, David and Danny will be hosting a collaborative event combining their talents and passion for Asian cuisine. This will not be the first time the duo have worked together, with the chefs previously hosting a successful dinner in Seoul together.
For those unfamiliar with Danny, he is the Seoul-born, Oklahoma City-raised food star who is fast becoming one of America’s most beloved unconventional cooking talents. He opened Mission Chinese Food in New York City in 2012 and was awarded the James Beard Award for Rising Star Chef of the Year a year later. Now with a second outlet in Brooklyn, Mission Chinese Food is nothing short of iconic food destination for those Big Apple bound.
“I liked Danny Bowien from the start when we met at Mission Chinese,” says David of his latest collaboration. “It’s been an improbable friendship because he’s so cool and he’s such a radical cook whereas I'm far more conservative and traditionalist in my cooking style. Yet somehow the different cooking styles work well together; I was astonished and astounded by the food we cooked together at Long Chim in Korea.
“I’m truly delighted to finally wrangle Danny to come to Australia. He will be visiting as a part of Gourmet Escape and will be doing some dinners with us in both Perth and Sydney. The collaboration will be just as adventurous as the Jock Zonfrillo event, but it won’t be the same mash-up style but something completely different.”
