Three apparently incompatible elements cohabitate in perfect harmony in this dish by Pier Bussetti. The melted chocolate is deposited into the base of the spoon. It is topped with a basil leaf, the oyster, some freshly ground black pepper, a smoked oyster water gelatin cube and a ribbon of olive oil. The ensemble is garnished with a parsley leaf and an oil crunch. The result is surprising and perfectly balanced.
