  1. Bravo !
    …to IFS for this wonderful review….,
    bravo to Mario, his family and his team for the performance….
    Micro & Silk = wonderful place 🙂

      The salmon recipe is in Mario’s new book – he prepares it in the oven at 90° (top and bottom heat) for about 8-10 minutes on a buttered tray covered with transparent foil…

      • I love that place! As far as I know, the salmon recipe is one of Hans Haas’ classics. Nevertheless, for me Mario Lohniger is one of the “great chefs of tomorrow”..
