Quarantine Kitchen Possible by Michelin-star vegetarian chef Paul Ivić

Paul Ivic Paul Ivic shows on Instagram how he combines a few ingredients into a good quarantine dish, in this case gnocchi.

For years, Tyrolean-born Paul Ivić has been providing vegetarian cuisine at star level in Vienna and Munich with the two Tian restaurants.

Doing battle à la kitchen impossible were Michelin-star vegetarian chef Paul Ivic and restaurateur Sepp Schellhorn during quarantine time. The latter broke out in a sweat baking a Belvedere torte and appeared somewhat jubilant while cooking up a paella, only for Paul Ivić to then refer to it on Instagram as just plain old rice with meat.


For the mushroom stock:
250g mushrooms
250g celery
3 tomatoes
3 litres of water

For the paella:
200g rice (Arroz Bomba or alternatively round grain rice)
0,9-1 litre mushroom stock
Runner beans
Sweet peppers
Mushrooms and herb sidlings
