Martín Berasategui y David de Jorge. Aventuras, desventuras y recetas

PRH/ Debate, diciembre 2015

Synopsis

The year is 2015 AD. The gastronomic universe is entirely occupied by philosopher chefs… Well, not entirely.

One small restaurant of indomitable chefs still holds out against the invaders … It’s the one run by Martín Berasategui in Lasarte (Guipúzcoa), and it’s way more than just a Michelin three-starred eatery. Home not only to the miracle of haute cuisine, it is also the lair of the great David de Jorge and the stage for Robin Food, his TV cookery show.
Martín and David star in this graphic novel in which they look back on the History of Gastronomy and tell their own life stories. They tell the tale of a cuisine unbound by nationality but with solid roots, of an approach to cooking that springs from the search for happiness and living life with relish. To the accompaniment of the brilliant, witty sketches drawn by and starring Javirroyo, readers will gain an insight into these two giants of the food world, while delighting in a hand-picked selection of 46 illustrated, step-by-step recipes that can easily be whipped up at home. All served with equal helpings of affection and good cheer.
