This week I was really excited to shoot at one of my favorite restaurants. Il Santo Bevitore serves inventive Mediterranean plates in a lively atmosphere. This month the chefs created a delicate new menu in honor of the ‘Denaro e Bellezza’ exhibition in Palazzo Strozzi. In typical Santo Bevitore fashion, the dishes are deliciously inviting, but for this occasion, embellished with a dash of gold dust.
In the images below: ’Cetica’ potato foam, poached egg with truffle and edible gold, chefs Pierluigi Campi and Claudio Salvadori and black ink squid risotto, shrimp carpaccio, orange zest and gold flakes.
