This passed weekend’s August Secret Kitchen dinner was a real success. Some unexpected problems with the oven and with the help didn’t stop us from producing a stunning event. The idea behind this month’s menu was all about creating expectations and preconceptions of a dish and then shatter them altogether. I thought about all these “normal” dishes and dessert names. You see a name and instantly know what the dish is all about: what’s it made of, what it’s suppose to taste like. What if I take some characteristics of these classical dishes but change the elements? Or if I keep the elements but change their characteristics? What if an ingredient or a dish we always thought about as dessert becomes all of a sudden a main course?
My goal in this dinner was creating references with food – the guest, hearing the name of dish will have expectations based on previous knowledge, but the dish itself will surprise him, reminding a nostalgic reference of this classic dish.
The photographer this time was Asaf Sagi who did a wonderful job (please come again!).
Many thanks to: Barak for helping out last minute, Asaf Sagi for taking these stunning pictures, Noa, Hagar, Anat, Itzik and everyone who came and took part! Until next time!
