The stage was a counter, covered with ice and shellfish, baskets of vegetables, breads and pastries. The script was different every night. Salvatore, gigantic, prepared dishes using the ingredients on display before the tables. Ada paced through the room and softly discussed dishes, preparations, took orders and reported them to Salvatore.

We could prepare linguine with sea urchins, said Ada.

I, said Gaia widening her eyes, I’ll have it.

Do you know what sea urchins are?

Yes, yes, said Gaia.

I’ll have it too, said Kristin.

Can I add chili peppers and ginger for you?

For me too, said Gaia.

Good for both of us, said Kristin watching Julia.

Good for all three of us, said Julia.

Olive oil and peas’ cream.

Very well.

And to start, I’ll bring a plot of field herbs, daisies and nuts.
