Things in 3’s

is one of those numbers that have a magic about them. Things in 3 create a tension, an interest and a strength, and this is  true in cooking.

We are always looking to build structures of flavours, to have a complex structure but not too much to  baffle the taste buds. So 3 building blocks of flavours answers all the above and is what we look for in our dishes.

One of our first and enduring dishes and a good example is the simple, Crottin de chevere, roasted tomatoes which are roasted together on a oak board in the oven and then served with tapenade. A lactic sourness from the cheese, sweetness from the tomatoes and bitterness from the olives. Magic
