About the Dinner performance - Les Nourritures Terrestres

Dinner performance «Les Nourritures Terrestres » by Samuel Boutruche (Kolkoz), James Henry (chef from the Bones, Paris), Svante Forstrop (chef from Les deux Amis, Paris) - Only by reservation - 65 euros

« The negative does not have to be specifically related to silver photography.
The settlement of humankind has started through the negative. The cave was hollowed out from the rock before becoming a construction springing from it.
The refinement of cooking and the history of the oven went through a "negative shape" period too. We can still find contemporary examples in the form of the barbacoa in Mexico, the hagis in New Zealand and the boodog in Mongolia. All these processes have in common the heat's transfer from the fire to the stones and the use of the soil's ground as insulation. It is this particular combination of mineral and telluric substances as much as the interest in the minimal and the essential that I share with chefs James Henry and Svante Forstorp. » Samuel Boutruche

About James Henry, chef from the Bones, Paris

It's been about a year since Australian chef James Henry opened the doors to his first restaurant in the 11th arrondissement of Paris. Bones — which, true to its name, is stripped down in both vibe and menu — was a highly anticipated arrival thanks to Henry's reputation and resume. The chef had gotten his start in Paris cooking at Daniel Rose's Spring and later captured the attention of Parisian diners with a turn at Au Passage.


About Svante Forstrop, chef from le Nüba, Paris

Svante Forstorp is from Scandinavian origin and has shaped his gipsy palate from kitchens of Rome, Chicago, San Francisco, New York and Paris. He holds a jazzy approach to cooking and believes that the greatest acts of a meal are performed spontaneously, under high pressure. Also, whatever the circumstances might be, when personality shines through food, he is happy. Svante loves olive oil and citrus.
