Oliveto - Tomato dinner

Like someone said, it's about the execution. Always. Historically, the hype has been high but the executioni left something to be desired, at least in my book. Yes over the years and scores of these theme dinners the output was better than average, maybe even much better but this is Oliveto and the bar should be darn high. This time the kitchen was on the level.

Salmon with tomato mousse
Mascarpone ice cream with tomato(ed) caramel and walnuts

In exchange for those, I can listen to Paul talk about consommes for 15 minutes
