01: Xavier Pellicer, 7-8th March 2023
On March 7th and 8th, 2023, alongside reservations platform Resy, Barcelona’s Xavier Pellicer came to Barrafina to host the first ever Barrafina Invita, a new quarterly series which sees Barrafina’s Michelin-starred Chef Director Angel Zapata Martin, invite the best Spanish chefs or chefs cooking Spanish food over to cook a special menu for two days.
Xavier Pellicer, previously chef de cuisine at Barcelona’s first Michelin star restaurant, Can Fabes, working with the late, great Santi Santamaria, prepared an unforgettable plant-forward tasting menu experience at Barrafina Borough Yards, where biodynamic, seasonal and organic vegetables took pride of place.
The evening showcased a unique kind of Spanish cooking, and we are thrilled to be able to share it with you. With great gratitude to Xavier and the team for an exceptional few days.
