Ceviche Brings Pop Up Restaurant and Masterclass Tour to Manchester

This July, food lovers in Manchester will have the opportunity to try fresh Peruvian cuisine as the Ceviche team, led by its founder and Executive Head Chef Martin Morales, collaborates with Teacup to serve a one-off Peruvian dining experience on 10 July.


Since opening in March 2012, Ceviche has earned its reputation as one of London’s hottest restaurants, and the very first authentic Peruvian eating experience in the UK. The pop-up restaurant and masterclass at Teacup is part of a ten date tour - the first of its kind in Britain.


Teacup sits in the heart of Manchester’s creative Northern Quarter, serving up loose leaf teas and freshly prepared meals alongside a menagerie of cakes and treats, all crafted from the best possible produce. Teacup began as a record shop nearly a decade ago, and has since transformed into one of Manchester’s finest eateries. The restaurant is co-owned by Manchester DJ, Mr Scruff, and his manager Gary McClarnan, both of whom are passionate about tea.


Teacup has partnered with Ceviche exclusively for one night. Guests are invited to attend a masterclass where they will learn to prepare Ceviche’s highly acclaimed sea bass dish, 'Don Ceviche'.  The masterclass will be followed that evening by a pop-up restaurant serving a selection of dishes from the book Ceviche Peruvian Kitchen, to create a unique dining experience.


Gary McClarnan, Co-Founder of Teacup says –


Scruff and I had the pleasure of creating some great music with Martin Morales many years ago, so when I was invited to the launch of Ceviche in Soho I knew it would be a class act.  Ceviche is special, the service is great and the food is brilliant.


Martin, former founder member of Apple iTunes Europe has been cooking since the age of ten. This passion remained with him throughout his life and two years ago he dropped everything, left his job as Director for Disney Music, sold his house and decided to dedicate his life to his love for Peruvian food. 


Martin’s anticipated recipe book Ceviche: Peruvian Kitchenwill be published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson on 4th July and available from Amazon, at £25, eBook: £12.99

Ceviche started in London as a pop up restaurant which sold out after one tweet from @martinceviche at each event. It then opened its doors in London’s Soho to critical acclaim and one year later, it continues to receive outstanding reviews.


Martin has drawn on his expertise and background in music to create the brand new concept of taking a pop-up restaurant on tour. He has also curated a playlist of Peruvian music that will be played on the tour, which can be accessed by cooks at home keen to embrace some latin flavour in the kitchen here:
