  1. Calamarata stuffed with ragu seitan & chickpea foam
    1. Boil the pasta for 4 minutes, drain them and cool them down to stop boiling.
    2. Then fill them and place them in a pan where we have covered the bottom with pomodorella.
    3. Bake in 180 degrees for about 15 minutes.
    4. For the chickpea foam:
      1. In a pot, heat the milk with the chickpea cream and just before it starts boiling, remove it from the heat.
      2. Add the proespuma and mix it until it becomes a mixture.
      3. Let it cool down and place it in chiffon.
  2. Tuna tartar with red fruits on rice crackers
    1. Place the tuna in a bowl and add the vinegar with pomegranate – elderflower, salt and olive oil.
    2. Mix it and let it get marinated for about 5 minutes.
    3. Then add the rest of the ingredients, mix and serve.
    4. For the rice cracker
      1. Boil the rice until it absorbs 1 liter of water and then blend it until it becomes a porridge.
      2. Then spread the mixture on a pan with non-stick paper and place it in the oven at 30 degrees until the mixture gets completely dry.
      3. Then break the mixture into pieces and fry in hot oil until it puffs up and becomes a cracker.
  3. Beef cheeks with chocolate flavor in chimichurri sauce:
    1. Add olive oil to a pot and sauté the cheeks.
    2. Add the double-concentrated tomato paste.
    3. Reduce the heat by pouring wine.
    4. Add the gravy and the pulled pork seasoning.
    5. Cook in low heat until the cheeks become soft.
    6. Once the meat is ready, add the mole and mix, correcting the salt if needed.
    7. Let the cheeks cool and then “pluck” them with our hands creating small fibers.
    8. Place them in the fridge for one hour.
    9. Then shape the meat into small balls so that we can bread them.
    10. For the breading:
      1. Mix the chimichurri along with the breadcrumbs in a bowl.
      2. Place the flour in another bowl and beat the eggs in a third bowl.
      3. Bread the cheeks with the well-known “flour-egg-breading” process.
      4. Fry them in olive oil until they get a nice golden color.
      5. Cut it in the middle and serve it out.
