MELANIE WEHRLI & AYUMI SAITO: BONNE BOUCHE
Daily Cantina at Les Communs.
For foodculture days Biennial 2020/2021 — Chapter 2, the daily cantina will be functioning in Vevey at Les Communs, selling of take-away bento boxes between Thursday, May 27, 2021 and Sunday, May 30, 2021, from 12:00 to 14:00, while inspirational photographs and the menu are available on FCD website.
Bonne bouche is the daily cantina for the event, which will be selling take away bento boxes as a summery restorative lunch with japanese and european gastronomic combinations. All dishes will have a japanese speciality with a salad from the region. The menu intends on being like a quick trip to a herb or vegetable garden through an aurora borealis, while paying homage to tradition and the product’s integrity as they merge together.
