The way I discovered this place was not conventional. My travel agency, Hidden in Spain (also fantastic) arranged a cooking session for me to work with Chef Cesar. Beyond the just regular cooking experience, I learned so much about Chef Cesar's philosophy to food. I truly got to see how each component, no matter how small on your plate, takes hours sometimes days to prepare. Quality is always in mind.
During my cooking session, I went to the market with Cesar and shopped for wines, breads, and cheeses. We sat and had cider and cheese to start things off before the work began. We broke down squid and cod; we slow-dried iberian ham, made squid-ink crisp...and then I got to set at the pass and watch as Chef Cesar masterfully plated several courses of meals in front of me served with wine pairings from his collection. It was an intensely intimate but casual experience.
This review is however about the food. And my only regret is that I wasn't able to come back to the restaurant to have that meal with friends. It was truly exquisite and Michelin-star worthy. ...small place bursting with huge flavors.
