far nascere un piatto o produrre un vino sono attività che si assomigliano intimamente perché entrambe combinano odori e sapori per aprire scatoline dentro di noi piene di ricordi, immagini sconosciute, viaggi emozionanti che durano il tempo di un assaggio. E ci lasciano un ricordo confuso ma ricco di esperienze e slanci di ricerca Creating a dish or a wine is a quite similar activity, since both try to mix flavours and herbs in order to let people travel through memories, images, trips which last the time of a simple byte. They leave us with a memory confused, but full of experience
