J’aime le chocolat! Chocolaty dinner at ‘Ra’

J’aime le chocolat!
Chocolaty dinner at ‘Ra’

Every Friday night, RA’s cook Hadas Cnaani offers a set menu, offering two courses and dessert as an informal, open dinner party. Named after the fictional home of the popular children’s character Pippi Longstocking, this weekly event has an emphasis on new flavours and cultural inspirations from across the world – sometimes designed with a particular theme in mind, or created in collaboration with a special guest cook.

For the Friday 27th of April dinner, Pantoufle and Hadas came up with a menu that has chocolate in every course! The chocolates that are used will also be for sale that night.
