The restaurant will also launch their new Christmas cocktail menu at the pop-up on Sunday, December 3.
Cochran grew up in Kent with parents from St Vincent in the Caribbean and Glasgow. The chef has previously said his cooking is informed and “excited” by his mixed heritage. He previously took part in a launch of the restaurant’s burger sauce.
Speaking of the upcoming event, Cochran said: “I had an absolute blast when we took over the Perro kitchen last year, so a return visit was a no-brainer! My dad is from Glasgow and grew up in Govan, so it’s always great to come back to the city he calls home!”
El Perro Negro founder Nick Watkins spoke of his excitement about the takeover: “It’s brilliant to collaborate with James again! The burger is another winner and we know that our customers are going to go mad for it! Get booked in quickly to avoid disappointment!”
The El Perro Negro x James Cochran Takeover event takes place at El Perro Negro, Woodlands Road on Sunday, December 3 with three sittings available at 4.30pm, 5.45pm and 7.00pm.
