Chef collaborations are nothing new to the people of Hong Kong, but when we turn this creativity and collaborative spirit into a great cause, that creates something extraordinary.
#Onigiriforlove 🍙🤍: A 13-Michelin Star Charity Pop-Up
From July 19th to August 1st 2021, some of the most celebrated chefs in Hong Kong join forces for #onigiriforlove at BELOWGROUND. All proceeds from the event will go towards Impact HK and Feeding Hong Kong, in collaboration with eco-friendly packaging by Shellify.
Initially inspired by fellow chefs and friends, Hisato Hamata and Yoshihiro Narisawa, the original #onigiriforlove founders in Japan, Chef Richard Ekkebus decided to take the lead and was passed the baton to continue this initiative in Hong Kong. Chef Ekkebus says “Chef collaborations are nothing new to the people of Hong Kong, but when we turn this creativity and collaborative spirit into a great cause, that creates something extraordinary. We’re extremely excited to start the project and raise as much for charity as we possibly can.”
An all-star – or to be accurate, 13 Michelin star – charity event, helmed by Chef @rekkebus, features local chefs and restaurants presenting their own spin on the classic Japanese ‘Onigiri’. We present you the run-down of the #onigirisquad:
