If you were a silk spaghetti strap of a burgundy silk dress by D & G grafting the body of Heidi Klum, glamorous beyond belief, stylish, sensual, with startling golden hair, luminous, scintillating as she saunters into the Michelin star awarded Silk Bed Restaurant of multi-award winning Chef Mario Lohninger you would be in a dream. A dream it is when you go to Silk Bed Restaurant in Frankfurt, or so it was for me, the week it was awarded it’s Michelin star. Silk’s concept combines visual effects, and culinary indulgences with a third experience. Selected DJ’s playing silky lounge tunes that set the mood for the panoply of orgasmic creations beginning with an aperitif stimulating all culinary receptors that tease you, for the thirteen course dinner. This dream like culinary experience comes at the hands of Gault Millau’s chef of the year 2011 Mario Lohninger as you float away with the food, the drinks, the music into culinary heaven.
The silk fabric has weaved it’s way from New York fashion week, to London, Milan and now Paris Fashion Week and Heidi Klum is no stranger to them, yet what a thrill it must be to arrive in your homeland, slip into comfortable slippers at Silk, and enter into the spherical ambiance as if in Roman or Asiatic time, stretching onto white leather couches, with cosy cushions. Everything at silk works like nature, in a rhythm all of it’s own seemingly effortlessly, as you listen, see, and taste. This is the first of a series of features on Chef Mario Lohninger during this Paris Fashion Week. So for those wanting to jump on a short flight from Paris to Frankfurt, you should do it, you will only live once, and while you have been looking at silk all week long you should take the time to experience the theater of the Chef, and the magic of his food. I did, I still have not forgotten the adventure as I discovered the magic of Chef Mario Lohninger as he assaulted me with culinary designs and innovations, the aromas from his roots Austria, France, Asia, and the America’s. The adventure of discovery never stops at My Name is Khan.
