, the expert on sustainable cookery who creates a new dish using the ingredients left over after the making of the chef’s dishes.
Dishes of the Week
The week began its taste adventures with the chef Renato Morisco on Monday August 3. He prepared a Prawn Heart on cicero e tria (the latter a traditional pasta dish from Salento, in Puglia) and then, with chef Guido Haverlock, he whetted the audience’s appetites with the organic Zackel lamb pastry pie. On Tuesday August 4, Marco Stabile performed with his Ultrapappa with Tomato, challenging the chef Vesna Miletic and his Neretva Broth. Creativity galore was seen on Wednesday August 5, with Massimiliano Musso preparing his lightly smoked Purple Potato Buttons and the Greek chef who won the first edition of Masterchef Italia, Spyros Theodoridis, who hypnotized the public with his Risotto with prawns, nectarines, powdered liquorice and fresh mint. Paolo Griffa, a young expert confectioner and representative of Italy in the San Pellegrino Young Chef talent show, on Thursday August 6 prepared his ‘Airbag’ dish, challenging chef Fabrice Desvignes, who created a vegetarian dish with “Violan” zucchini roasted in garlic. The week concluded on Friday August 7 with the savory simplicity of Matteo Vigotti’s Toasted Bread, and the Thiove and Lumino de Mandioca by the chef from Mozambique, Juhnia Pacheco.
