Roberto Okabe is a Brazilian-born chef with Japanese roots who set out to conquer Italy.
Okabe runs Finger's Garden restaurant in Milan where he blends ingredients from the East and West to create his very unique cuisine. Some call his food a work of art and by the looks of the recipes below we can't help but agree.
If you'd like to make your own creations with a chef's touch, try the following recipes Okabe shared with FDL.
This is a whimsical dish made of five different types of mushrooms and vegetables wrapped in kataifi pastry, which resembles shredded wheat. It's a gorgeous dish that will surely impress guests at a dinner party.
Okabe combines foie gras with traditional Japanese ingredients like mirin and sake to make a velvety cream. A bit of caramelized eggplant brings out the natural sweetness of the fresh tuna. The finishing touch? A sprinkle of tobiko roe.
