Beef And Fatty Tuna In Dashi

By Mory Sacko and Eyal Shani

Eyal, loud and charming and Mory, quiet and concentrated, the two chefs chose freedom as the main ingredient to imagine this new kind of kebbab. Eyal went in search of an almost philosopher's stone in the vineyards. Mory has reinvented the codes by giving a Japanese touch to this one-of-a-kind dish which has hypnotized that mesmerizes anyone who’s lucky enough to try it.
