My intention is to maximize the minimum:
My cuisine is made up of plain and pure elements only – food where nothing has been added to, forced upon or corrected.
That is why I never add something, I only put together what intrinsically belongs together to create utmost delight. Thus the dish that is served is something radical by its nature – a radically natural cuisine.
