On April 1st I got the absolute honor to attend, for the second time, the International Culinary Exchange organized by Wujie Restaurant here in Shanghai.

You guys might remember my post about last year dinner, my very first whole vegetarian dining experience, and how THAT experience completely changed my view on vegetarianism. Those of you who regularly follow this blog might have also noticed how I have, since then, started cooking more healthy meals and more vegetarian-based dishes.

When Kimberly Wong invited me to join the 5th edition of the International Culinary Exchanged I was excited and happy to have the chance to enjoy a full-on vegetarian meal cooked by the amazing Swiss chef Marco P. Brueschweiler.


Like last year, chef Marco designed an amazing 8 course dinner, all based on Mediterranean food.

Dinner was served on the 5th floor of Wujie restaurant in Xujiahui, facing the beautiful Xuhui garden


Each course was paired with a non alcoholic white wine, which I loved! I might be weird, but I like the whole idea of enjoying a tasty glass of “wine” without intoxicating my body with unnecessary alcohol. I believe most of you might disagree with me on this point, and don’t get me wrong, as a proper Italian I do enjoy having a glass of red or white wine during my meal, but if I’m embracing clean food then alcohol free beverage aren’t a bad options.

Among the exquisite deli that were served for dinner, I particularly enjoy the Mushroom Bourguignon in Stewed Apple. I found the idea of serving this meat-like mushroom inside a sweet apple so original and unique!

I also loved the beetroot Fettuccine with Peas and Pistachio Cream, which I’m definitely going to try make at home

and I absolutely loved the egg crepes with satay sauce and the oatmeal carrot croquette
