Cocktails (“Bubbles”)
I pictured a fleeting image of a woman like fine bubbles which burst in the air.
In these bubbles which cool the heat of summer, I combined aromatic fragrances.
"Bubbles" from the Edo Period is a summer poem also found in Kabuki or Joryori.
Please savor the fragrance of the bubbles as they burst, in this refreshing cocktail.
[Aromatic bubbles]
The fragrance of spicy cloves and refreshing rosemary, a summer day which you have forgotten is revived;
a female figure, wearing the elegant fragrance of neroli and citrus, is awakened like a fleeting bubble in one`s memory,
while frankincense calms the mind, the blue of yarrow protects the soul, and colors deepen the background.
For a magic moment, please enjoy the aroma when the bubbles burst,
a refreshing world of cocktails that invite a cool breeze to blow in the mind.

PROFILE OF ARTIST

Tateru Yoshino

Executive Chef Tateru Yoshino

Tateru Yoshino goes to extremes to ensure that the ingredients' natural goodness are fully expressed before serving them gracefully in a manner based on the concept of terre (earth) cuisine, which involves preparing dishes as nature intended without disturbing their inherent beauty or essentiality.
Yoshino claims that his vast array of dishes, including his Wild Rabbit Royale and Veal Head Stew, which have attracted the attention of the world's foremost gourmets, are based upon the natural scenery of the place in which he was born and raised.
His creative French presentations that are attracting huge attention in Paris and in Tokyo are sure to be the center of even further attention in the coming future.

Yoshiaki Takada

Head Chef Yoshiaki Takada

Takada claims, “The greatest virtue is kindness to others - if you practice that, you will inherently know your guests needs. That is what cooking is all about. I try to develop dishes which take the superb cooking of Kyoto one step further, while still respecting the traditional Kyoto spirit.
