The Cooks' Panino.
The deceptive seduction of an apparent freedom.
Great cooks thrive and survive, secretly, on panini. A comfort food that represents the cook’s nemesis: it isn’t cooked, it isn’t plated, the table isn’t set, it’s eaten with your hands, all the flavours are eaten together in one bite, and it’s difficult to find an accompanying wine. A great cook, in order to build a panino, must know how to predict how the individual foods will transform, together with the bread, and be eaten all together. Do you prefer to conserve the integrity of each, individual ingredient chosen? Which is the main ingredient? Do you prefer the result of tasting all the food together? Or a flavour that doesn’t exist? Will the cook make the bread?
