The Pool

From 114 BC until 1450, Southern European merchants connected with Africa, Arabia, Persia, India and China through the Old Silk Road trading route. Along with the exchange of goods came the exchange of stories, religion, culture and delicious food. This ancient network is the unseen force that has shaped many of this world’s modern cuisines. For this reason, the Old Silk Road serves as the main inspiration for the cuisine of The Pool. Mediterranean food at The Pool is more than just the dishes of Southern Europe. It follows the connection of the Old Silk Road. It unites the French, Italian, Spanish cuisine with the Levant, the Balkans and North Africa. The Pool thinks of the Mediterranean Sea as an enormous pool surrounded by a food-loving community. In these communities or countries, food is more than substance. It’s a way of living. As it will be at The Pool.
