From homemade hen to truffles: the MENU III with FunKooks

We embarked on a culinary adventure called The Menu III – all the food, without the fuss…

We started with June and Renee Yoshida (FunKooks). They were our special guest chefs and gave us unforgettable moments and unique tastes under the starry sky of the Rhodope Mountains. They created a menu worthy of applause, with ingredients from our garden, the mountains and the nearby sea.

It is no coincidence that they are often described as two of the best chefs in contemporary Bulgarian cuisine. Yes, they are!

Snow, sunshine, candlelight dinner, three days filled with lots of laughter, emotions and unforgettable moments. And because the merits of the food stand out better with the right drinks – the duo became a trio. Thanks to @drago_tequilablessed_ivanov we paired food with wonderful cocktails.

For those who weren’t able to join in on these special moments, we share the menu details:

– Homemade hen velouté, truffle, quail egg, celery salad, truffle butter croutons.
