#Remember the Floating Piers

The Floating Piers Isola di San Paolo

Starting this weekend and the following two weekends after that, the village of Sulzano and Monte Isola at Lake Iseo will be the setting for Remember the Floating Piers. The event marks the first year anniversary of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s colossal work of environmental art that allowed visitors to ‘walk across the water’ in a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

A shame we won’t be able to attend any of the festivities, but for the occasion I put together a dish that we enjoyed after walking the lake last year. The original by Dispensa Pani e Vini featured trout tartare in goat milk yogurt, but here I’ve substituted salmon which was easier to source at the supermarket. It’s a nice, light course to serve during warm summer days.

Remember the Floating Piers
Sunday’s lunch starter: salmon tartare in unsweetened goat’s milk yogurt, garnished with trout roe, evoo, and topped with a thin, crisped strip of polenta.
