LORTO was conceived on the idea of giving a primary role to the vegetable world, which becomes the protagonist of the dish, leaving animal proteins a marginal role, of pure flavor and seasoning. The perfect representation of the cooking concept is the “Cabbage 2.0,” which consists of two main ingredients: cabbage, a poor ingredient, is the protagonist; non-starring actor, chicken, in a version of sauce as an accompaniment.

Fish, whether from the sea, lake or river, makes its way into this tasting path, showing the potential of also less commonly used fish, but which turn out to be fundamental in our attempt to minimize all waste in the kitchen, using every part of the product to compose the different elements of the dish.
