Following the success of Stephen Terry’s, Maria Elia’s and Vivek Singh’s takeovers earlier this year, Salt Yard Group invites award-winning Peruvian chef Martin Morales to Ember Yard on Monday 23rd November. For one night only, Martin has created a selection of tapas-sized dishes, inspired by modern Peruvian cuisine and chosen to complement the regular dishes on the Ember Yard menu that are inspired by the primal technique of cooking simply over wood and charcoal.

Alongside an Avocado Sour aperitif, guests will be treated to dishes such as: Hand-dived scallops tiradito, hibiscus tiger’s milk, chia seeds gel, charcoal salt, pickled green plums, crispy seaweed; Braised lamb, dark beer, coriander, altitude Peruvian potatoes, peanuts, amarillo chili, brussels sprout flowers and Marinated grey mullet skewer, uchucuta herbs chimichurri, pickled red onions, cassava cream. Desserts include Caramelised black figs, chancaca syrup, queso fresco mousse and caramelised pecans and Lucuma cream, black cherry jam, quinoa coffee crumble, pisco-infused cherries, chocolate and mint.

Chef and founder of three restaurants across London (Ceviche Soho, Andina and Ceviche Old St), author of bestselling cookbook Ceviche: Peruvian Kitchen and a regular face on both television and live cookery events across the country, Martin Morales is one of the most inspiring Peruvian chefs. In addition, he is involved in a variety of music and arts initiatives including his very own Peruvian music label, Tiger’s Milk Records and Ceviche TV (, a YouTube channel which airs Peruvian-inspired short films and recipe tutorials on a weekly basis.
