Chef Zama is proud to be a part of the vibrant food community in Philadelphia. One of the best spots in the city, French restaurant Bibou was named one of GQ’s Top 10 New Restaurants of 2010, run by Chef Pierre Calmels. We invited Chef Calmels and his sous chef, Ron Fougeray, into our kitchen to make the Bibou Roll. This addition to our Celebrity Roll Series is believed to be the first-of-its-kind, an escargot sushi roll.
The escargot is sauteed with shallots, edamame beans and shiho in a soy dashi butter, set atop tempura haricot vert and fennel maki. A portion of proceeds from the roll goes to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
