The Calendar of Grand Hotel - January:
The Five Confidants of the Chef - sapor sapor
Long before umami was recognized as the fifth basic taste, the Five Confidants of the Chef had established themselves on Grand as patrons of our culinary experiences. Sweetness, sourness, bitterness, saltness and umami thus each received their own guardian. If the preparation of a dish - Heaven forbid! - would be inadequately flavoured, the suitable gang member from The Five Confidants of the Chef takes charge and calibrates the meal before it reaches the table and the guest.
This pentagon has settled in Snurren for the best view of the dining room. The Five Confidants of the Chef have various legions deployed in the room to optimize their service.
Did you know?
These are Grand’s oldest creatures. Before man began to season the food over open fire, these demigods had already flavoured all the crops of the earth.
