Special Care on the Table #1

Preparation 1 - Dubai Marina

Dubai Marina takes inspiration and its name from the residential district of New Dubai.
The preparation aims to represent textures, flavours and colours of an opulent and modern city, linked to tradition, represented in the dish by elements of the earth such as pumpkin and chickpeas.

Tasty contrasts presented by the Sous Chef Borsari - Opificio Cucina and Bottega Restaurant, Novara - on the «waters» of Rosenthal Junto Aquamarine: circular blue shades reflect the infinite variety of the sea and its depths.
