“Aerobanquets RMX” is a world of beautiful, delicately woven art, where art informs food and, ultimately, food always influences art. “We were inspired by The Futurist Cookbook. That’s where we started,” Casalegno said. Published in 1932, the book is a collection of surrealist recipes based on the idea of ​​the future, by the Italian poet and scholar FT Marinetti. “We created different scenes and environments that were seen in the book, and then we went back to the menu. We thought about flavors and colors inspired by the virtual spaces we created. And then we went back to developing shapes and colors,” said Casalegno.

“The best thing about this menu is that everything should be bite-sized. There should be many layers, many textures and different flavors in a small bite,” Pandya told us. “As a chef, at first it was very difficult for me to figure out how to compose it all, but I think that’s the fun. Let your creativity flow. You have to question everything you’ve been taught.” Pandya’s food, created by Flavor Five Studio, is strong, unexpected and delicious.
