Speaking About the Move, René Redzepi, the Cook and Owner of the Establishment, Participated His Particular Story in Japan.
He first visited the country numerous times ago to study food culture, noting how it was a mind- blowing trip full of new prints and sensations, especially when he first endured the traditional tea form and recalled followed all the numerous rituals and sitting for hours in awkward positions.
But, while pondering why Japanese people were paying so important attention for a mug of tea, he sluggishly realised that the practice alludes to the “ art of giving meaning to putatively insignificant moments, and to discover what can grow from these moments when set with intention and fidelity ”.
Talking of his trip, he disclosed how he learned that this form, formerly only concentrated on tea, over time started to include small plates of food and noted how, with refinement this has now evolved into a kaiseki mess – a selection of dishes prepared with inconceivable study and consideration to reflect a particular season.
In this coming pop- up, Redzepi shows the ambition of using a Western tasting menu to reflect the seasonality of Kyoto. In the Kyoto menu, the culinary platoon will reference constituents from original growers, nimrods, fishmongers, and recon and will work veritably nearly with this original network of suppliers.
Indeed though menu will reflect the sakura season in Kyoto, he wo n’t regard Noma Kyoto as a Japanese eatery.
