Hidden treasures at the Byzantino
The Byzantino Restaurant of the Hilton Athens continues the tribute to seasonal products with recipes inspired by the hidden treasures of earth. From the 27th of January until the 5th of February 2012, Executive Chef Yiannis Manikis creates tasty and healthy dishes with root vegetables. Potatoes, carrots, beetroots, sweet potatoes, turnips, onions, celeriac, fennel become delicious winter salads, soups and main dishes with an exquisite flavor and high nutritional value.
In the heart of winter, humble root vegetables sustain and inspire us. Nutrients in plants sink into their roots transforming root vegetables into little energy bombs. Root vegetables have an undeserved reputation for being dull and bland. While they may look dusty and unassuming, root vegetables may surprise you with tastes that range from slightly bitter to pleasantly sweet. Try celeriac fricassee, sweet potato soup, beef patties with honey glazed carrots, grilled chicken with parsnip puree, carrot soup with colliander, roasted cod with stewed fennel. The buffet menu will change daily to offer you opportunities to taste a wide variety of basic or more innovative recipes based in root vegetables.
No wonder why root vegetables were rumored to have aphrodisiac value in ancient Greece! Take this opportunity to discover some unknown food treasures which lie hidden under the earth.
