Fire – Black Flat ( paratha bread with cheese cream)
The sour taste of cheese cream with the smell of yellow powder made the feeling slightly hot taste like a fire.
Air – Sky fruit (Meringue with aromatic whipped cream)
Softly taste of Meringue mixed with little sweetness of whipped cream gave a feeling of air chewing. The bite of lavender seeds that sprinkled on top of whipped cream as if I am standing in the middle of violet field, with the blowing wind and lavender scented.
Within the surroundings of the late Baroque splendour of Rotonda della Besana. Each kichen and dining hall has a clear aesthetic, materiality and cooking method with the extraordinary taste experience.
