Spanish Cuisine is much more than Tapas

Vanguard Gastronomy

One area at which the label "Made in Spain" is a true sign of quality, it is certainly gastronomy. And it is impossible to travel somewhere in the world and not find a place in which "tapas", probably the most universal word in Spanish, are offered. However, Spanish cuisine is much more than that.

The British magazine Restaurant annually publishes the list with the 50 best restaurants in the world. This list, drawn up based on the opinion of various international chefs and critics of prestige, is the world leader in the definition of culinary trends. In 2015 seven Spanish restaurants went into this list, highlighting, on the first position, El Celler de Can Roca. In this article we present some of the most outstanding Spanish restaurants, and undoubtedly referring of world cuisine.

El Celler de Can Roca (Girona): This Catalan restaurant took over in this list, the world famous El Bulli of Ferran Adrià. Founded in 1986 and specialized in traditional Catalan cuisine it is run by Joan, Josep and Jordi Roca. These brothers were brought up in a stove, as their parents run a restaurant. They define their cuisine as "free kitchen committed to creative art, without sacrificing the memory of generations of family ancestors dedicated to feeding people."

Mugaritz (San Sebastian): This restaurant, located on one of the most important landscapes of Spanish cuisine, the Basque Country, has been in this list since 2006. In 2015 it made the fourth place. Michelin says it is a "thoughtful and very personal kitchen defined by an absolute technical mastery and an admirable offer multidisciplinary. To enjoy its constant juggling with colors, contrasts and textures”.

Asador Etxebarri (Atxondo): This grill house, also Basque, presents a different type of Mugaritz cuisine. Ranking on 13 on the list, their cuisine is based on the fire, a traditional kitchen innovating various types of firewood and techniques, as they say, "offers amazing possibilities preserving the natural identity of the products."
