Un año más, al lado de Il·lusions a taula
Llega la sexta edición de la cena solidaria Il·lusions a taula y una vez más no me la quiero perder por nada del múndo. Estoy encantado de poder colaborar una vez más con Osonament y el Rotary Club de Vic-Osona para hacer posible esta iniciativa.
La recaudación de la cena de este año, que tendrá lugar el 17 de mayo en el Sucre de Vic, ayudará a hacer posible el proyecto terapéutico para mejorar la intervención precoz en los problemas de salud mental y adicciones entre los jóvenes de Osona mediante el uso de las nuevas tecnologías.
Colaborar con el equipo de Jubany Events para hacer posible el menú de la cena es un placer. Jamás dudo en dar mi apoyo cuando se trata de contribuir en este tipo de causas. Todo lo que he aprendido en los fogones está siempre al servicio de las propuestas altruistas.
Así que si queréis poner vuestro granito de arena, ya sabéis, el 17 de mayo, venid a saborear las Il·lusions a taula.
We show PUR gastronomy to the CETT
The students of the High Gastronomy, Executive and Creative Cooking course at CETT-UB were able to learn first-hand how we understand gastronomy and teamwork at Pur in Barcelona.
On Wednesday, 20th of February, I visited CETT to do a master-class with Maties Coll, the head chef at Pur, in front of about thirty students who are expanding their university knowledge in the world of haute cuisine. I wish they would learn a lot from our experience and take advantage of it in their projects.
Turning Passeig de Gràcia into the Passeig dels Gourmets
Barcelona enjoys an excellent gastronomic area in Passeig de Gràcia and its adjacent streets. This is why from March 14th to 24th during the second edition of Passeig dels Gourmets I will be participating to raise appreciation of the love for cooking. This year, together with Carles Gaig, I will be taking part by preparing a menu ‘of four hands’ with the best of traditional Catalan cuisine.
The dinner will be held at the Restaurant Solc del Majestic Hotel & Spa in Barcelona on Tuesday 19th March and will consist of some appetizers to begin with, followed by four more dishes to reveal how Carles and I understand cuisine, and a dessert to sweeten the meal.
It's always a pleasure to cook with a teacher like Carles Gaig, from whom I learned so much and I am still learning. I’m sure the guests will also enjoy it.
Cooking at Universo Santi, a kitchen integration project
To be lucky enough to open a programme with such noble intentions as that of chefs’ dinners at Universo Santi Restaurant is a real privilege. This Thursday, February 14th, I shared the kitchen beside people with disabilities in this restaurant located in Jerez de la Frontera, which promotes the social and gastronomic spirit of the great cook Santi Santamaría.
I was the first cook to participate in a series of special dinners to be held monthly on a Thursday with Michelin star chefs. As well as designing and cooking a seasonal menu with the restaurant workers, I also gave a 'masterclass' to teach them some cooking concepts.
Cooking with them has been a wonderful experience. I’d like to thank Fundación Universo Accesible for giving me this chance to highlight the memory of Santi Santamaria.
Showcooking at Trufforum, the International Truffle Congress
You cannot ask for more! The International Truffle Congress, the Trufforum, arrives in Vic for the first time, with Jubany taking a key role. You know that we are great fans of this product. It is one of the best examples of what our land can provide.
The truffle is one of the jewels of Can Jubany's cuisine. So, what can I say? Well, simply that it has been a fantastic experience to serve the inaugural dinner for all of the professionals at the Congress with the Jubany Events team, and equally incredible to share a black truffle showcooking with 250 people in the Auditorium.
Quico and I explained how to use truffles using examples such as truffle oil, truffle juice and soft Tilos cheese.
We then prepared truffle butter, truffle millefeuille with foie gras and Apple, anchovy on straciatella, caramelized hazelnut and truffle; low temperature truffle egg with crumbs and soft Tilos cheese.
Congratulations Vic for becoming a city of reference in the international truffle circuit, and thanks to Trufforum for letting us share what we love so much: the truffle!
