Smell Taste

''This project is my garden. I have planted, fertilized, cultivated, and harvested. Orto Parisi states that our body is experienced like a garden, and its smells are a true mirror of our soul.'' -The Nose, Alessandro Gualtieri. Boccanera is a delicious blend of warm ginger and chocolate with spicy chili pepper, black pepper, and sandalwood. At least that's what we think we sense in this delectable delicacy...but with Orto Parisi, there's no way to be sure what you're smelling, and Boccanera poses an additional, fundamentally confounding question; can we taste what we smell, and if so can we smell taste? As dark and glowering as a wide mouthed smile, Boccanera is a beautiful grimace that nods at this synesthetic quandary. Initially sparkling with rhizome-like resplendence Boccanera soon starts to sizzle as sweetly as the floral potency of Sichuan pepper. This dank, embracing heat eventually abates to make way for a dense, matte chocolate that is so thick we find ourselves wondering if we are smelling (or tasting) the thick, unaltered richness of cocoa butter rather than chocolate. Each of these fragrant facets is infused with a lurid lushness, as if the elements were dissolving in our mouths. Boccanera is an experience akin to being inside a mouth (or other cavity), wherein every object entering is fantastically outsized and yet oddly different, up close. As tantalizing as a mouthful of delicious, but well outside of gourmand tradition, Boccanera crisscrosses expectation and anticipation, recreating hunger and satisfaction, on skin.
