A La Mano

Neo Futurist Dinner 6: Extending taste to Touch in six courses

26 Sep 2018
29 Sep 2018

In this six course dinner, Italian food designer Giulia Soldati and chef Tommaso Buresti present a culinary experience that extends taste to touch. No cutlery and plates are involved, instead our hands are used to enjoy food and to explore new food interactions. The traditional way of perceiving food is replaced by a new body language of dancing hands around the table, becoming a sensorial celebration of the action of eating, twirling spaghetti and breaking thin pastry with the fingers.

Giulia Soldati

As a designer, Giulia Soldati uses food as a tool to explore the relationship with our bodies. In the modern West, we have created a lot of barriers between our sensory perception and the world around us. With A La Mano, she presents a new culinary experience and language that is closer to our essential sensorial experiences. 

Tommaso Buresti

Italian Chef Tommaso Buresti grew up in the kitchen of his fathers restaurant. He cooks as long as he can remember, and loved to experiment with food. His background in Industrial Design influenced the way in which he looked at food and experimentation. He approaches cooking as research, a trial of different factors, with a delicious end-product. Previously he cooked at Bird in Rotterdam. With Giulia Soldati, he sets out on a collaboration that not only brings great dishes, but a new culinary vocabulary and choreography as well.
