NOSHtrekker, The Garden of Evening Mists

In November, NOSHtrekker brings to life the celebrated novel The Garden of Evening Mists by author Tan Twan Eng in a fine dining experience in Penang, Malaysia, that is not to be missed. The evening will call on the magic of the gardens at Yugiri and the ambience of dining at Majuba Tea Estate.

The Book

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2012, The Garden of Evening Mists reflects on a period of Malaya’s troubled history, and captures the culture, mood and struggles of survivors of war in the setting of Cameron Highlands.

A Menu Of Emotions

The multi-course menu for the night will be an interpretation of the text into food by Chef Kim Hock Su – San Pellegrino’s Best Young Chef Semi Finalist 2016. Dinner will be held at Restaurant Au Jardin with seating limited to 20.

“The menu reflects a penetrating insight into my book and the complex relationship between its two main characters. Like Aritomo’s garden, Chef Kim Hock’s imaginative and exquisite menu will take diners on a journey of emotions, memory, and the senses.”

Author, Tan Twan Eng

“It’s our pleasure to be part of this collaboration with Tan Twan Eng and NOSHtrekker. To narrate a good, locally authored novel like The Garden of Evening Mists is exciting for me and the team. Every dish has been carefully planned and curated to enliven the plot, and make it dimensional for our guests.”

Chef, Kim Hock Su

Review for Grandma’s Recipes

"...I'm hooked!... Every dish was delicious. I attended the event alone and had fun interacting with the others at my table. Glad I joined the event and am looking forward to other NOSHtrekker events."

Review for Jam Therapist

"...we were utterly charmed... The fresh breakfast spread (including cheeses, home baked breads, freshly squeezed juices, meats, and of course jams) was divine, and we had a wonderful time just sitting and chatting."
