Senses Restaurant Warsaw

SENSES restaurant is the Polish culinary window to the world with Andrea Camastra as a host. The place belongs to the elite international culinary community and it’s one of the best restaurants in Poland and in the world.

SENSES restaurant, despite its high-tec equipment and own food sensory lab (thanks to cooperation with lab workers – Wiktor Faliszewski and Kacper Bylinka), is all about natural, real and complete tasting experience. Flavours come from the best natural products that are found and approved by Andrea himself. Most Polish products come from the farm in Kolbuszowa. The rest – come from all over the world – sea water from Italy, chocolate from Switzerland, meat and seafood from Spain, sturgeon caviar from the Polish Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship. Andrea Camastra puts emphasis on light and healthy dishes but, on the other hand, he is able to preserve the lard flavour in a dish completely free from unsafe fats. It is also the core principle of “note by note” cuisine, that the SENSES restaurant is entirely devoted to.

Andrea Camastra

chef

The master of flavour and sensory combinations. He was born in Bari, Puglia, Italy, in a mixed French-Italian family. Andrea was brought up in the culinary tradition of Italian cuisine.

Andrea gathered his experience in the best international restaurants. And he still broadens his knowledge about Polish cuisine. Interestingly, his relations with Poland are also personal. You can say that Andrea has fallen in love with Poland and a Polish girl.

Note by note

“Note by note” means preparing dishes out of basic constituent chemicals extracted from natural compounds of the best quality. It is the highest possible culinary sophistication where the chef is an artist limited only by his own imagination and skills.

Andrea Camastra was asked to write preface to the latest Hervé This’s book “La cucina nota a nota”. The book deals with the history and principles of “note by note” method. It explains the complex issues of odour and taste, colors, shapes, and consistency that are essentials to know before entering “note by note” cooking world. The book was written in French, but it has been already translated into English and Italian. And pictures of chef Camastra’s magic dishes embellish the cover and the preface to the Italian edition.

In his preface chef Camastra encourages: “We can all be artists; 10 colours – picture, 10 notes – music, 10 flavours – dish… Welcome to the new culinary age. Enjoy yourselves as much as we do“. Andrea emphasises that the issue of entertainment is equally important for the cook and for the guest. Therefore more and more foreign cooks are joining his challenging team in Warsaw. Revolution in progress! From SENSES Restaurant Andrea sends a message to the world – the future is now…

Camastra’s closest co-workers are: Wiktor Faliszewski – the scientist in charge of the laboratory and chef’s right hand and research and development sous chef Kacper Bylinka. Growing base of essential compounds is supplied by Michael Pontif and his Iqemusu institute.
