But it's also remarkable in its flawlessness: the cod cooked just so, subtle maillard brushstrokes on top, flesh as tender and yielding as a truffle. The potatoes have been smoked; not the full essence de barbecue, but enough to give them personality. And the espuma is potato foam, as soothing as fine vichysoisse, as airy as a quip. Those dots? Black olives, desiccated into crunches of pure flavour.
