POTATO SPAGHETTI, BUTTER and ANCHOVIES
The inspiration of chef Noda Kotaro’s iconic dish, is one of using simple ingredients such as butter and anchovies together with a sort of julienned potato ‘spaghetti’.
The idea was to offer a gluten free dish with no commercial additives but instead using julienned potatoes, not boiled in water as would normally be the case with an ordinary spaghetti, but sautéed with butter making a salty dish thanks to the sliced anchovies and a crispy taste given by fried potatoes.
With this dish, in november 2017, Chef Kotaro won the first prize al Taste the World of Abu Dhabi.
