Tonight, my valentine took me to Giesserei Oerlikon, a former foundry that is now a restaurant, located in the cool neighborhood of Oerlikon in Zurich. For this special evening, “the foundry” was lighted with candles, the table was decorated with rose petals, and the music was slow smooth jazz: very romantic, especially when you start off with a kiss and a cocktail. Without a doubt, food is the perfect demonstration of amore vero.
There’s a funny Valentine’s Card that reads:
I’m going to spend Valentine’s Day with my true love… Food. Well, yes. Of course. And with my soulmate.
It’s beetroot, not bresaola! Mischievous but good.
The soup was absolutely delicious! It made our palates shout with joy.
Can the beef be more tender? Impossible. This dish was balanced, tasty, and special. The Monk’s beard was a great choice.
Valentine’s Day cannot be Valentine’s Day without chocolate. Thank you for existing, cacao seeds.
Buon appetito and cheers for love!
