In that occasion Asola will serve the “Shoku no Wa”, a delicious 10-course gourmet menu. From the combination of Italian and Japanese ingredients have been created Orecchiette pasta with Kobe Beef and peas by chef Yamane, Casareccia with Nori seaweeds and sea urchin cream with Yuzu Kosho by chef Hidaka. Chef Kataoka created fried Kamaboko with wasabi, and Italian Gelato with cookies, candy lemon and Kinako by chef Torretta.

For instance, the sparkling Puchi Puchi Suehiro is ideal with starters, the yamadanishiki junmai daiginjo Shinsei Hyouonkakoi is perfect with Matteo Torretta’s gelato. Enjoying the Shoku no Wa menu becomes a way to inaugurate what will be the new summer trend in Milan, an original food experience that will get your mouth watering. Friday July 10, the menu will be presented at Asola together with the traditional a la carte, for lunch and dinner.
