is a japanese fondue dish. Shabu shabu is traditionally made out of thin scliced meat and vegetables which is served with a dip. We reinterpreted our Shabu Shabu into a soup with sliced Wagyu beef.
The Wagyu is a breed of cattle originally from Japan and the world’s most expensive domestic cattle. Wagyu beef – which stems from the Kobe breed – is raised in a natural environment with a strong emphasis on animal welfare and is entirely free of artificial additives, growth hormones, steroids or antibiotics. The natural and species-appropriate breeding programme guarantees the meat’s purity.
The Greenshell Mussel
The scallop of this type of mussel is soft and has a spicy taste. The greenshell mussels resemble our common mussels and are popularly known as New Zealand mussels. Like the regular mussels the greenshell mussels grow on mussel beds. The greenshell mussels are bred sustainable in aquaculture to protect the endangered wildlife.

What are Poké-Bowls?
The so-called Poké-Bowls are originate from Hawaii, but have been experiencing a real hype in New York and LA.
The most important ingredient for the dish is fish, which is eaten raw like the Japanese Sashimi or Korean Hoedeopbap. Basically, the fatter the fish is, the more tender it tastes when raw. The seasoning is a marinade, which consists of soy sauce, oil and exotic spices like ginger, lime or hot pastes. The base of the dish is rice, quinoa or salad. Add crunchy vegetables and delicious toppings and the exotic excursion is complete.
Heritage Angus Beef (CDN)
The Heritage Angus Beef comes from cattle that originate in the Canadian province of Alberta. These animals grow up in a natural environment and bred without the use of antibiotics, added hormones or steroids. They have never been kept in a cowshed in their life. Framers place a high value on maximum sustainability - from rearing to shipping. The meat is extraordinarily tender and tasty.
What is „Crying Tiger”?
„Crying Tiger“ is a traditional Thai dish also known as Suea Rong Hai – in fish sauce marinated meat sautéd with garlic, coriander, chilli and ginger. A legend says that this Thai dish is so delicious it even sets a tiger off crying. Slices of beef are compared with the tigers tears. But it´s only a myth…;-)

Vacherin - mont d'or
The Vacherin Mont-d’Or AOP is an unique soft cheese speciality from Waadtländer Jura. For over 100 years the cheese is lovingly made by hand in Vallée de Joux just to ripen in traditional Affinage-cellar to an exquisite, smooth taste. The cheese gets his taste from the local pine-wood which gives it a special scent of tannin. Vacherin Mont-d’Or AOP is originally produced from October until spring time because of the shortage of milk during winter time. Later on it became tradition. Today the production time takes from the end of September until April.
Valrhona has created Caramélia to combine the delicacy of caramel with an exciting chocolate. Unlike milk chocolate with caramel flavour, Valrhona uses real caramel based on skimmed milk and butter as the main ingredient, creating a unique creaminess. Taste experiments in the kitchen showed that several years of research were needed to develop a recipe that could be produced on a large scale. This delicious creation presents itself with a delicate, creamy consistency, which is particularly suitable for casting figures.
