If you’ve ever had the pleasure of dining at Eat Me Geneva, you’ll know that it is not so much about going for a meal as it is about going on a culinary journey – you’ll enjoy inspiring, creative dishes from around the world, served on small plates for sharing.
The concept was inspired by Serena’s own travels – her “food souvenirs” – and this concept has been embraced and re-imagined with the chefs’ imaginative interpretations.
“Food is about sharing, and through our dishes, we share the stories of our travels and our food souvenirs. We add our individual touches, sometimes staying close to traditional preparation methods, and sometimes transforming a dish with our contemporary twist. Then, we tell the story of our creations with our special sense of humour mixed in.” explains Serena.
This is illustrated by some of her favourites on the menu:
The “New Age Gyoza” – a dumpling, made from scratch filled with Asian-marinated veal brisket, pineapple chutney, and roasted cashews, and served with a teriyaki demi-glaze – an elevated interpretation of what is essentially an Asian street food.
The “Kanafeh Canape” – testimony to their playful menu names – is made with aubergine, sun-dried tomato and feta cheese wrapped in a middle-eastern pastry, Kanafeh. The pastry is usually served as part of a dessert in Palestine, but in Eat Me’s version, it is used to accentuate a savoury and mouth-watering vegetarian treat, visually resembling small canapés.
