Gelinaz, the chef’s collective, are back in town on the 3rd December. But this time, they are not travelling, they are staying “at home”. What travels this time, are their recipes. Each chef had to submit eight recipes that are typical for him/her, but she/he never served them at the restaurant yet. Those recipes were then shuffled and sent to another chef who will remix them in his/her own way and serve on the 3rd of December, for one night only, dishes inspired by those recipes to her/his guests. The guests and the chef will get to know whose recipes was interpreting the chef only at the end of the dinner through the Gelinaz ambassador who will attend the dinner (I will be that night the ambassador at the Aimsir restaurant in Ireland). Ambassadors will also take care of communication from the restaurants on that night, so if you are curious what is happening on the other side of the world, do follow us on Instagram (mine is here).
Philip has received the recipes. And now?
What was your first thought when you read the recipes you received?
Wow how nordic can it get?!
What do you think of them now?
I will matrix it so far that they will be south cuisine
If you had to choose an animal to describe them, what would it be?
How will you approach it?
That’s a good question! Just do it the same way as I always do! See what our farmers have to offer and then try to push the boundaries for myself and also for our customers.
What will be the greatest challenge for you in this Gelinaz project?
For now I don’t see any problems! But maybe you should ask me this one day or one hour before the service!
And what are you looking forward to?
At the moment I´m off after a surgery! So next week I´ll be back in the kitchen and then start the remixer for the matrixes!
