Nawamin said: “The Naked range is packed full of amazing flavours, so when they asked me to help create this pop-up experience it was very easy for me to say yes.
"There’s a great spread of great tasting products that I was able to work with, and it was a lot of fun experimenting with the different flavours that I used to create this exclusive menu.
“What we’ve created is really special, and I can’t wait for people to try it when they head down to the pop-up. It’ll be great to meet everyone and share our creations with them when we open later this month.”
Kevin Butterworth, Marketing Director at Symington’s, added: “Nawamin is undoubtedly an incredible talent as he proved time and time again on MasterChef, so when we were thinking of partner chefs for our pop-up experience his name found its way to the top of the list very quickly.
“The Naked brand is all about delivering an authentic taste experience, and the menu Nawamin has created really enhances Naked’s flavours in a way that we know people are going to love.
"We’ll be sharing previews of some of the dishes across our social media in the run up to the event, so make sure to keep checking regularly for a sneak peek at what’s in store. We’ll also be running competitions to win spaces for those not lucky enough to bag one.”
