Sto:ry Menu #1: “Meant to Bee”
In our first iteration, Story Menu #1: “MEANT TO BEE”, we would like to tell the unique stories of the bees, one of the many beautiful gifts that Mother Nature has kindly given us.
This bee-themed 7-course tasting menu is a showcase of our creativity, technicality, and the belief that human beings are meant to be kind to ourselves and to everything around us.
“I’m talking about the arriving of this new menu. A while back, just before the two devastating storms hit Danang, we tried rescuing a bee colony just by Nen’s place. It was no simple task for us so we had to ask a professional beekeeper to lend us a hand, and little did I know it was the process that helped open my eyes to the amazing world of the bees.
After that incident and tons of research later, I found out there are so many amazing ways to cook with bees. Besides honey, you can also utilize beeswax, bee pollen, bee larvae… to make delicious and amazing looking dishes. I felt compelled to tell the story of their magnificent life to the world by doing what I do best: engineering a menu that details the bee’s significance and highlights human’s relationship to nature. It feels natural, it feels right, and let’s hope I don’t mess it up!”
