Risotto with cabbage consommé, trout eggs and black truffles (Peter Brunel)

 

There’s something extraordinary going on in the kitchen at Florentine restaurant Borgo San Jacopo (borgo San Jacopo, 62).  

 

Michelin-star chefs and top food journalists join resident chef Peter Brunel and pastry chef Loretta Fanella for the Spoon dinner series for a night that is as much about companionship and company as it is about gourmet cuisine.

 

Guest chef Thomas Kavcic presents his aperitif on a piece of grass brought from his native Slovenia

 

Upcoming Spoon dinners will welcome Oliver Glowig of Ristorante Oliver Glowig, Rome (2 Michelin stars) on August 3 and Nadia Santini of Dal Pescatore, Canneto sull’Olio, Mantua (3 Michelin stars) on September 14. Each dinner features vertical wine tasting by a selected top Italian producer.

 

Every menu takes its inspiration from the Expo Milano 2015 theme of Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life and continues the creativity on show in Lungarno Collection’s I Eat Earth installation by Simone D’Auria in vicolo dell’Oro.

Raw, dry, hot (Peter Brunel & Thomas Kavcic)

Cost 100 euro per person, includes wine and welcome aperitif.
