AVin’s dinners✨-first edition-
aVin is pleased to announce the start of a serie of collaborations with Chefs from different countries and influence.
The first edition took place last february in one of our studio with
Penelope Barboza, executive Chef of Tokyo’s Argentine Embassy, living in Japan since 2012 after working in several restaurants in Argentinia and Uruguay, her home country. South American cuisine forms the foundation for Penélope Barboza identity, but her repertoire embraces influences from Italy, France or Japan.
The menu incorporated fine flavors from Japan and France as Tsubaki, Umeshu or black truffle and her dishes seeked to emulate the beauty of these cultures encounteer with the wines from the Rhône Valley and Provence.
We hope with these collaborations to share our vision of the cullinary experience as a complete cycle, interrelating a body and its environment, an individual to its community.To invite you to discover unusual flavours and pairing! Discover our wines from Provence and Rhone Valley. Occasions to evoke terroirs, tastes, aromas, colors of the wines but also shed light on the people behind.
Discover some photos of the preparation at the Argentine’s Embassy and during the dinner!
