'If you have arrived here, it's because you have decided to surrender. You surrendered long before knowing to what or to whom. A battle lost by the decision to win in the unknown. Here, the weapons are different. It is in the fire that we fight our battles. In the line of each recipe, we aim our arguments and shoot with conviction. Here, every conquest begins with a look. While at attention, the mouth prepares for the offensive. In senses, the attack begins. Bitter, sweet, sour, salty, hot, cold, surprising, explosive. An army of sensations that disarms us with each strike. We hear the deafening silence of food that leaves us speechless. In this place, where conversation is not made, conversation happens. The trigger of each dish pulls the word. And when it arrives at the table, it speaks for itself. This is the battlefield of senses where we fight for the triumph of taste. Where we plant the beauty of simple food; as it is, not as we wished it to be. Here, you won't find flowers on the plate. But on the palate. And with each bite, a new springtime is born. This is the only battle that makes sense to fight. The only victory that makes sense. Prepare to surrender.'
