BÜLOW RESIDENZ / DRESDEN
1 MICHELIN STAR
Harmony is the foundation of the art of cooking as well as in music. For Stuttgart born Dirk Schröer, both things belong together like day and night or sun and moon. In his daily creative process, music plays a central part. Almost no recipe has been created without him listening to music – mainly at night, when his family is asleep. The starting point for his contribution was Dresden when he was still the chef de cuisine in the Bülow residency. In May 2013 he moved to Geisenheim, located in the Rheingau.
For WHITE PLATE, Dirk has created an exciting experiment: he had the idea to translate tastes and flavours into sounds and pitches. In cooperation with the students and staff of the Trossingen Conservatory an interactive sound installation was developed under the supervision of Professor Florian Käppler. Visitors will be able to experiment and to discover the comparability between flavours and sounds as a game of harmony and disharmony – and thus face the challenges of a master chef who is responsible for culinary compositions.
