Catering studio, My Private Chef will host a pop-up dining experience from 26 to 29 June. The pop-up restaurant, STORIES, will be the first chapter in a series of events that combine cuisine with Singapore's history.

The four-day event will be held at Tanjong Pagar Railway station, and features the fine food prepared by leading Singapore-based chef Stephan Zoisl, with theatrical storytelling by actors in between courses. Lunch and dinner sessions will be held.
The meal will be a five-course menu by chef Zoisl. The courses will include dishes like a duck confit with a Peranakan-style vegetarian curry jus, as well as salmon sashimi with fennel, mandarin oranges and rempah vinagrette.
The meal will be paired with wines from Lapostolle and at dinner sessions champagne from Moet & Chandon will also be served.
Chef Zoisl has worked in Michelin-starred restaurants in Portugal, Vienna and Chicago and spent four years with the now-defunct Novus. The dishes in the menu for STORIES combine fresh produce and local flavours through European cooking styles. Vegetarian menus are available on request.
STORIES is also supported by Singapore Tourism Board's (STB) Kickstart Fund.
The event itself is a part of STB's Tourism50 celebrations – a year-long campaign that celebrates 50 years of tourism development in Singapore.
