Barrafina Invita 03: Jordi Bross
Barrafina and popular restaurant booking platform, Resy, are proud to announce Jordi Bross of two-Michelin star restaurant in San Sebastián, Mugaritz, as the third guest chef in the quarterly series showcasing the breadth and quality of Spanish cooking from all over Spain and the rest of the world.
Barrafina Invita is a quarterly series where Barrafina’s Executive Chefs, Antonio Gonzales Milla and Francisco Jose Torrico, invite the best Spanish chefs or chefs cooking Spanish food, over to cook a special menu for two days at Barrafina Borough Yards.
Born and raised in Mexico City, Jordi Bross moved to one of the world’s most exciting gastronomic destinations, San Sebastián, at the age of 22 to study at the prestigious Basque Culinary Center. Since then, he has lived and worked across the globe, including the US, Panama, and Italy, training under the tutelage of some of the most influential chefs of our time, such as Andoni Luis Aduriz and Massimo Bottura, and contributing to culinary research projects with the Galápagos Foundation in Ecuador. In 2020, he was recognised as one of ‘100 Top Young Talents of Gastronomy’ in Spain by Gastroeconomy.
Returning to San Sebastián at the age of 28, Jordi joined the internationally renowned restaurant, Mugaritz, where he has risen through the ranks to become Head Chef.
The tasting menu carefully designed by Jordi will be playful, ingredient-led, and innovative. Dishes include:
