MDW23 – A RELAY OF PRECIOUS INGREDIENTS
As part of Drawing Better Connections, Arclinea’s new manifesto for its ethical design approach, we proudly present Relay of Precious Ingredients – a unique culinary experience connected to the natural world through rare ingredients.
Establishing a more conscious bond with what we eat is essential to sustaining life on Earth. By exploring cultural diversity within the context of flavour and taste, we can build a flourishing future on the foundations of tradition, preserving the many rituals that connect a global community to their roots in order to cultivate a world that welcomes difference and encourages exploration without bias.
In collaboration with Giovanni Marabese of Milano Food Project, Arclinea has curated five private dinners that will take place as “a relay of precious ingredients”. Chefs Luca Marchini, Stefania Bergonzi from Fieno, Norbert Niederkofler, Mimosa Misasi and Gisli Matt will each present a unique menu, fusing rare ingredients with favourite flavours from their individual regions. In the spirit of creating better connections, we have brought together both established Michelin-starred chefs and emerging talents from different cultures and experiences. Each will share two ingredients from their region with the next, creating a relay in which these precious elements, all at risk of extinction, are the baton.
Culinary traditions from around the world will be transformed into unexpected experiences and recipes.
As each ingredient is placed in the palm of a new chef, culinary traditions from around the world will be transformed into unexpected experiences and recipes, broadening our understanding of the foods we eat, emphasising our need for responsible sourcing, preserving the legacy they bring and unveiling the value of connecting, through food, consumption and production.
