with vegetables and almond glaze, then it’s quite nice.
Can you recognise raw vegetables by their smell? Absolutely! I sniff my vegetables a lot. (laughs)
How do you prefer your vegetables: Raw or cooked? With or without skin? Preferably with a lot of roasting aromas but retaining their bite - chunky and rustic, with fine raw fruit and vegetables. They perfectly complement each other. I’m a huge fan of the skin and of processing from the root to the blossom.
Everyone is currently talking about superfood. What is the ultimate superfood for you? Fresh, locally grown vegetables, herbs and fruit - harvested and processed with a lot of attention. That’s superfood. That also includes wild herbs such as nettles or ribwort etc.
Are shoots also vegetables in your eyes? Shoots are the preliminary stage of herbs, grain or vegetables to define it precisely. (laughs) They’re also a superfood. I like using shoots. But it’s a bit of an absurdity, if you always throw a handful of shoots on every dish, even if they don’t have any impact on the taste or create harmony with the rest. Gastronomically,it’s really “in” at the moment. I find that really annoying.
