About Martín Berasategui
For 39 years, I have devoted body and soul to what I like doing best in the world: cooking. We have always tried to be precise with our gestures, prudent with the oven, accurate with the blade, refined with our sense of smell, sharp at the marketplace, and strict at the stove.
It’s not very difficult to get food right. You just need to know how to make the most of what you’ve got and improve it, as we live in a privileged country.
My daily struggle with my team is the oldest in the world: where hand confronts fire.
The old battle of flesh against flame.
