Melancholy

If anyone watched BBC2’s The Delicious Miss Dahl will have no doubt been driven into rage by the number of times the word Melancholy was used. Yes it was the title of tonight’s episode, but really, it was a little excessive to say the least. For those of you who didn’t watch it here’s the link so that you too can get into the same pain that I was in, I know I could have changed the channel but I did get quite hooked at when she would say melancholy next. The blurb below is a synopsis of the episode for those of you who can’t watch the episode.

The Delicious Miss Dahl, Melancholy

It’s a melancholic day and there’s no getting away from it. The only option is to feed this melodramatic emotion with dishes that could cheer up Eeyore. Starting with bubble and squeak cakes served with red onion gravy and a languid fried egg, the joyous indulgence begins.

Next, Sophie locks herself away in the shed at the end of the garden and, while reading hopeless poetry, she treats herself to the perfect chocolate sauce poured over ice cream. But her soul craves the curative power of chicken soup and this brings her back to the kitchen for her own luxurious version and a soothing cardamom rice pudding with spiced plums.

After this indulgent menu, it’s time to get outside and engage with the world again. Sophie recommends food shopping for the liveliest colours and flavours that can be found, after which she returns to create a spicy tom kha soup, which awakens the senses and inspires her to open the curtains and let the sunshine back in.

Casa Camper Dos Palillos

Spanish shoe company Camper have recently branched into the hospitality sector with stunning results. Their two Casa Camper Hotels based in central Berlin and Barcelona create an” innovative concept which combines a high degree of functionality with friendly aesthetics”. Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec designed the interior for the Dos Palillos Berlin restaurant to create a space which reflects the culinary experience of chef Albert Raurich, former chef of elBulli. The room number curtains are amazing!!

Naturally, the kitchen had to be the centre of the space and thus, it had to be wide open so that guests could see the preparation of the dishes from the beginning to the end. We have decided to articulate the environment around one long wooden table and the stainless steel kitchen, one module facing the other. Consequently, the guests find themselves at the centre of the kitchen, while the chef acts in front of them”.

It was important for us as well to set a dialogue between the 10 cooks and their nearly 30 guests, invited in the chef’s kitchen. In order to emphasize such an interaction and encourage eye contact, we worked on different ground levels so that the guests are able to have a global experience once seated at the table, as if they were attending an artistic performance”.

“Throughout the project, our intention was to reduce our level of intervention to the utmost to let the scenery express itself. Indeed, the space is voluntarily raw with very few elements and materials to sustain the idea that the legitimate sense of the space comes from the relation between the guests and the cuisine.”

This simplistic, casual and personal style of dining ticks all the boxes for me and I’m sure the accommodation would to, take a look here.
