Salt crust baked celeriac, butternut pumpkin and black truffle

Wrapped in a salt crust cocoon and baked to perfection for 90 minutes, the celeriac reveals its savory essence, harmonizing with the delicate sweetness of butternut pumpkin.

This seemingly simple combination is elevated by the addition of black truffle, infusing the dish with rich, earthy aromas, earning its title as the 'Flower of the Earth.'

Foie gras terrine, green pistachio, pineapple jelly

In a delightful twist, pistachios impart their nutty aroma and subtle floral notes in a classic foie gras terrine. 

Paired with the refreshing tang of pineapple jelly, and served with pistachio bread, this dish is akin to a gentle breeze on a spring day, invigorating the senses with its richness and freshness.

Mint-infused lychee granita cradles fresh oysters, creating a picturesque scene reminiscent of a tranquil spring garden.

The cool, refreshing taste accentuates the oyster's natural brininess, offering a miniature landscape of oceanic flavors that captivate the palate.
