Soup Opera
Written by Fabio Marzari   

 

ImageBeyond the architecture of flavour, the construction of taste which, in the union of several ingredients, forms the essence of the food itself, some people have mused on the physical construction of the dishes, drawing their inspiration from the works of great architects from contemporary times and from the past.

 

Gian Nicola Colucci from the Terrazza Danieli, Daniele Turco from the Gritti's Club del Doge and Alberto Fol from the Cusina all'Europa & Regina have desired to "build" some new dishes, both from the aesthetic point of view and from that of flavour in its strict sense, combining diverse "raw materials" for a final effect that delights taste, sight and smell.

 

At the Gritti, until the end of the Architecture Biennial (still a few weeks to go), beyond the usual menu it will be possible to order Vitruvio's assiette, a bowl of grilled vegetables with sea bass tartare and dill, Imhotep's pyramid of flavours, a fine cut of beef with potato crisps and mushrooms, and Hiram's Turris Eburnea, lime Bavarian cream with meringue and sauteed peaches.

 

At the Danieli, where a recent restoration has improved even further the high luxury standard of the hotel, each new dish is associated with a famous architect: to Santiago Calatrava is dedicated a geometry of fish and fois gras with country salad and sweet & sour ginger; to Renzo Piano, a cube of tuna with three kinds of pepper, prawns and sole with guacamole and seasonal vegetables; to Philippe Starck, a conical semifrozen gianduia and vanilla desert with a core of pistachio and Sicilian orange sauce.

 

Last but not least, at the Cusina dell'Europa & Regina, it is possible to choose a Trilogy of Geometrical Figures, that is, a tureen of vegetables and goat's cheese, a cube of liquid burrata and a cylinder of tomato, Architectonic Movements in the plate, a veal filet with potatoes in three consistencies and truffles, and Mayan chocolate with a Mayan pyramid of unsweetened cocoa.
