Two celebrated chefs showcase innovative takes on Mediterranean cuisine.

Jacques Sorci
Executive chef at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park

Bouillabaisse
Socca Flat Bread and Caponata Relish

Sorci’s bouillabaisse is all tradition, including several classic Mediterranean ingredients. He turns fish heads through a food mill to produce a hearty broth. The soup also requires market-fresh fennel, tomatoes, potatoes and Old World time and patience.

Sole Fillet and Dublin Bay Prawns, Purple Potato “Trinxat,” Lemon Butter and Vanilla Air
White Asparagus Vichyssoise with Egg Yolk Gnocchi and Truffle

Holz’s ethereal confection interprets the Mediterranean Sea’s common denizen: sole. He says his Italo-German heritage keeps him connected to the food. “In both countries we have great respect for product, season and region.”
