Quail egg crostini with tomato mousse, sun-dried tomatoes and Serrano ham

This was a creative combination of flavors and textures, with a poached egg atop crusty toasts spread with a delicious tomato mousse and slices of Serrano ham. A light cream sauce was drizzled over the portions.

Pork Belly (150 g)

Baked for 8 hours with beer sauce, served with Brussels sprouts, radish and onion pearls.

The chef molded the lean meat into a loaf of shredded pork which flaked when cut. Small pieces of radish and onion accompanied the presentation. Two sauces circled the meat and grilled halves of Brussel sprouts.


Salmon with cream of garlic, vegetables, croutons and purslane

The fillet was thick and moist, perfectly prepared. The sauce melded well with the fish flavors.

Guava cheesecake

Crystalized fig and cheese tart with creamy vanilla

This avant garde circular mousse-like round tart featured light fig flavors and cheese garnished with a light vanilla sauce, strawberries and tiny droplets of flavored red and green sauces. It was dense but smooth and light to the touch of the fork.
