What is Optional?

Prejudice can highly affect the way we experience food and create a conscious refusal to taste a certain dish.

 

Most of us refuse to try certain ingredients for no objective reason.

This fact lead us to create a dish under the name OPTIONAL.

At the beginning of the menu guests are informed that for the dish called Optional a description will be given after consummation. At that point guests are given a choice to try the dish or to change the dish for one from Vegetarian menu.

Most of our guests accepted to try the dish and they genuinely enjoyed it. However, some of them did mention that they wouldn’t even try it if they knew what was it.

Dish called Optional are in fact, bull’s testicle medallions in herbal crust, sautéed on brown butter. They are topped up with crispy chips made from bull’s penis. The dish is completed with nettle cream and chamomile gel. If you ask me, perfection…

Texture of testicles sautéed on butter is similar to texture of Scallops. Toasted note comes from penis chips and is similar to pop-corn. Chamomile balances the dish and makes it more subtle, while nettle cream gives it fullness.
