My “cima alla genovese”

Antiche Contrade
Chef: Luigi Taglienti
Country: Italy
City: 12100 Cuneo
Address: via Savigliano, 11

A splendid deconstruction/reconstruction of a classic dish from Liguria (the region where the chef comes from). The “cima” is served practically broken down. Each one of its components are “reconstructed” in the dish according to the personal style of the chef, paying homage to his beloved Piedmont region in northern Italy. The distinct elements are arranged over a delicate cooked cream (panna cotta) with peas in such a way that the guest tastes, in different bites, the sweetbreads, the peas and the crunchy pine nuts, the quail egg, the chopped pieces of mortadella, the beef marrow and the rosy slices of beef as well as a subtle veil of green cream that gives consistency and body to the cima (the genius) of Luigi Taglienti.
