Michelin star awarded dishes that look like works of art

Stelle Michelin | Collater.al

On the evening of Tuesday, November 23rd, all the Michelin stars of 2022, the greatest international recognition in the world of catering, were announced for the first time in live streaming.
The 67th edition has awarded 378 restaurants, 56 only in Lombardy (the region with the highest number of stars), 36 are the restaurants introduced for the first time in the elite of Michelin stars, 15 instead have not confirmed the high standards required by the guide established by the French company.
Among these standards there is certainly the taste and respect for raw materials and sustainability of cooking, but also an aesthetic component which must have the dishes once presented on the table. Scrolling through the menus and the sites of the restaurants included in the 2022 guide it is possible to see how the technique and creativity of the chefs leads to create real works of art. The profile of the dish becomes the frame of small masterpieces of color and texture.

Pastas, meats, fish and sauces look like they were laid by painters on ceramic canvases. Dishes look like monochromes by Kazimir Malevič as in the case of “The five ages of Parmigiano Reggiano in different texture and temperatures” by Massimo Bottura, or wonderful expressionist palettes as in the dessert “Pannacotta Matisse” by chef Enrico Crippa.
The search for balance, be it chromatic or taste, the contrasts of textures and the union between craftsmanship and abstract concepts is what brings cuisine and painting closer together. The only real luck is that the works of art of the Michelin Guide can be eaten.
