As part of its new spring menu, Mugaritz is serving an incredibly tempting dish: chocolate-covered sins. The dessert is among 50 new dishes that will be offered at the restaurant this year.
The seven deadly sins are represented by seven chocolate bonbons served in stacked wooden bowls resembling the legendary Tower of Babel. Each serving is concealed under a wooden lid which, once removed, displays lustful bites of chocolate.
The bonbons are made by acclaimed Catalan pastry chef Oriol Balaguerwhile the stunning oak bowls were designed by GR Industrial Design. Here's a pic posted on the restaurant's Instagram:
Cef Andoni Luis Aduriz says he wanted to offer diners a playful ending to their meal, one where lust is intermingled with fun. ''Chocolate nourishes the body and spirit. Bitter or sweet, black or white, it's an ancient food...responsible for producing happiness and excitement in humans,'' he explained in the restaurant's blog.
Now a three-Michelin-star restaurant, Noma has changed, but not necessarily on the plate. According to Kenneth Foong, it's all about the way the team works, which is closer to a tech company than a traditional restaurant. Read our exclusive interview with Noma's head chef.
