A world renowned chef, a leading chemist and a prominent jazzman cook it up at the Megaron

What’s cooking at the Athens Concert Hall? An exciting, culinary event is scheduled to take place at the venue’s Alexandra Trianti Hall tonight as world renowned chef Pierre Gagnaire, innovative chemist and co-founder of molecular gastronomy Herve This and jazz drummer Daniel Humair join forces. What has this unexpected trio come up with? All three will use the same utensils: a state-of-the-art kitchen as well as carefully chosen ingredients. The evening will focus on a tomato sorbet, a honey/lemon/oregano mousse, a Vauquelin au cassis, without discarding a little bit of feta cheese. In the end, what is dubbed as «constructive» cuisine will lead to a real work of culinary art. Part of the Megaron Plus series, the event is organized in collaboration with the French Embassy and the French Institute in Athens. Athens Concert Hall, 1 Kokkali & Vas. Sofias, tel 210.728.2333.
