The result will be a unique, globe-spanning, gastronomic gathering you won’t want to miss, with plates like Rougie Foie Gras Cones with Pickled Green Apples and Jalapeño–Ginger Crumble; Petite Lobster Rolls with Yuzu Mayonnaise; and Langoustine–Daikon Ravioli with Langoustine Emulsion, Grapefruit, Salsa Verde, and Mentaiko.
