I have eaten at Mugaritz on 3 occasions and have been blown away by the pure simplicity of the ideas and alas the amazing way the dishes have been created using cutting edge tequniques and original combinations that just pack such an intense flavour from the stocks and nages...
In this awesome book you get a great insight into a chef that places nature at the forefront of his creations very similar in many ways to the God father of natural cuisine Michel Bras.
But Andoni really does use cutting edge tequniques Wow just amazing....
The great thing is that the restaurant was burnt to the ground in 2010 but the story has it a small group of Japanese chefs helped with the relaunch. Raising the avant guard standards of Spanish cuisine to another level. As with the Roca brothers.
You will not be cooking many of the recipes At home unless you have an avant guard kitchen.
This book is for the serious food and art lover, there are also some great photographs and in depth restaurant stories just to give a feeling of 100% satisfaction with your purchase as the chef has given his heart to this book.
I do love the way that the contents is laid out
Introduction, beginnings, surroundings, less, learning, sharing, being here, recipes and then glossary & index.
There are 70 recipes with the amazing pictures sharing the same page.
I would recommend anybody who love art & food then indulge in this great publication, even if it will adorn your coffee table it's just amazing it will in years to come be a very sought after cook book...
I devoured the book in one afternoon. Every page is a learning curve with interesting facts, science, local geography, elaborate techniques and very particular ingredients and equipments. It's a delightful and eye-catching coffee table book. However, I really like to try recipes from cookbooks. I like the experience, the strange interaction with a book and to understand what the author is trying to achieve even before finishing reading the page. Once you read the recipes, the approach, and specially the equipment list involved your mind boggles. The lack of very expensive facilities in domestic kitchens is a real problem. Compounded with the unique ingredients its a real challenge!
This is one of the most stunning cookbooks I've ever seen. I can't wait to go to Mugaritz and taste the real thing. In the meantime, I can always flick throught the recipes.
