For Christmas, Akrame reinvents the fig, honey and olive oil jam.
Anyone who’s been to Shirvan Café Métisse will tell you: Akrame is never as true to himself as when he plays with iconic flavors of oriental cuisine. For Confiture Parisienne, the star chef excelled in simplicity: roasted figs coated with orange honey and then puréed with a drizzle of olive oil. A pleasure that is as authentic and beautiful as life, which Akrame says he understood the three fundamental elements to be these simple ingredients.
With the first spoonful you trust him, with the second one you’re converted, with the third one you become an expert because Michelin-starred gods are not to be found on every street corner. And to keep this happy miracle flawless, Confiture Parisienne has created a black-lacquered jar – the real color of the sun – with a label adorned with a drawing made by the Master himself.
