Food and famous spanish chefs
Today I'll write about food and chefs, specially of Navarra and Basque Country. My advice to you before to read this post is the same that when you go to the supermarket. Eat a healthy snack or meal before you go to
the supermarket read this post.
Spain is famous for its gastronomy. Our mediterranean diet is well-known for its use of fresh foods and healthy like olive oil. We have as well renowned chefs such as: Arzak, Arguiñano, Ferrán Adriá, Berasategui and several excelent chefs.
Arguiñano has a daily TV programme on a Spanish channel and he is very funny and probably the most famous TV chef. The Arguiñano's restaurant is located in Zarautz -Basque Country- (1 hour from Pamplona), a wonderful place to visit by the way.
We ate in the Arguiñano's restaurant one year ago with friends from Sevilla. It was a fantastic and enjoying activity. Firstly, we were introduce to Igor, he is one of his various children. We enjoy the meal with funny anecdote Igor tell us. Secondly we were delighted with the meal and the beautiful sea view. And in contrast with another similar restaurants, it's not so expensive as the people think it's. Furthermore it has economic and tasty menu with excelent food like this:
And lastly we met to Karlos Arguiñano! He is as funny as we watch him in the TV programme.
The basque country is a great place to visit and to enjoy eating. Navarra is close to the Basque country and the food is fantastic too.
In another hand in Navarra we have tpical products such as alcachofas, piquillo red peppers, excelent Navarra cheese, seasonal mushrooms, cogollos, asparagus, fantastic meat and several more products all of them tasty with a good Navarra wine.
The previous month, the Navarra's gastronomic visited New York and Washinghton in order to promotion our maravillous tipical food.
Personally my favourite Navarra food it's a good piece of Navarra meat with piquillo red peppers. Which is your favourite food?
