It happens often to listen to music while preparing dinners and lunches at the stove, it hardly happens that the music we listen to is the result of what we are actually cooking. Food Ensemble, describes itself as “the first concert you can eat” and the definition reflects very well the live musical and culinary sessions. Food Ensemble is a project in which kitchen sounds are sampled and mixed, while simultaneously cooking products served to concert-goers. The spectators interact doubly with the project, born from the dishes of chef Andrea Reverberi and sous chef and sommelier Marco Chiussi and completed with the music of composer Francesco Sarcone.
Food Ensemble has toured all over Italy, collaborating with brands such as Barilla and world-renowned chefs such as Davide Oldani, the latest stop on the experimental tour is “The sound of panettone”.
The preparation of the most famous dessert of Italian Christmas has been sampled by the group, creating a black panettone with drops of salted caramel and a song that can be purchased now in pre-order, with a code that will refer to the song published on Spotify.
The craftsmanship of the cake and the song follow the same rhythm, divided into two times – like the leavening of 14 and 8 months – one darker and the second more open and cheerful.
The “Panettone Nero with salted caramel drops” is a project realized in collaboration with Cremeria Capolinea and master pastry chef Simone de Feo. This Christmas, the question will no longer be whether to keep or remove the candied fruit from your slice of panettone, but to listen to what that slice sounds like.
