Cooking is a permanent quest for discovery. This is something I try to adhere to, which began for me in childhood and continues to the present day via my profession. For years, I wanted to create a signature dish, a symbolic, almost philosophical expression of my cooking, which tells the tale of my origins. This could only ever be a vegetable dish, containing my favorite vegetables, the ones so present in my cooking for more than twenty years. They provide the thread connecting my own life with the many diverse sensorial experiences found in my restaurants. This cookpot is not only a cooking story; it also illustrates the harmony between form and content.
