These intriguing dishes with a not-easy-to-do execution infuse complex flavors, but at the end of the run, lose, in my opinion, the flavor of the product itself because of the too much richness in the mouth.

I couldn’t leave Tokyo without stopping by at the Intercontinental Hotel where the chef Pierre Gagnaire was hosting his food promotion during the month of July. His preparations are always very clean and net as this Chef always delight us with.

The dishes to remark for the combinations of very elegant flavors are:

-Trout poached in a a Natais butter, fresh hebs and green olives; watermelon gazpacho

-Supreme of guinefowl stuffed under skin, dry sin, dry raisins and pistachio.Awabitake poele with sarriette aspic flavored with hojicha tea, shitake half confied and tomato water.

I have to say that this time, in my very humble opinion, the promotion wasn’t worth the price paid. Unfortunately, I wished to find something moreā€¦I will come back another time in the future.
