Emigration Fish

Samuel Boucher and Jahn Schlosser
June 2014

A wonderful dish representing the emigration of young people from Spain. The one side of the fried dorada represents Spain, all in red and yellow, while the second half shows where Spanish people emigrate to. Each piece represents in size the amount of Spanish immigrants to the six most favoured countries, and is prepared in a way that’s typical for the respective country: battered fish for the UK, with a wine sauce á la Française for France, cooked in beer and parsley for Germany. The US fish is fried in bacon fat, while the Ecuadorian fish is prepared as ceviche. When tasting a piece, you travel to that country in your mind.
