Part of Grupo Dani García

Dani García is one of Spain’s most internationally renowned chefs, having achieved 3 Michelin stars and the Bib Gourmand 2016.
His restless and creative nature is reflected in his cuisine without borders, the result of a wide array of influences: from his roots in Andalucía, the southern region of Spain, to the cultures he has discovered travelling around the world, summing up 20 years of experience and learning.
He describes his style of cooking as “Cocinacontradición”, a play on the Spanish words for tradition and contradiction. It’s a fitting label considering his cuisine is based
on contrasts, from the mix of a wide diversity
of flavors and textures to the clash of hot and cold temperatures, without ever losing sight of the traditional flavors of Andalusia. The result
is presented in a delicate and magical manner. It is an avant-garde cuisine rooted in tradition, where technique is at the service of taste and where the use of local products is reclaimed as
a starting point to achieve a brilliant result. It may seem disconcerting at first, but ultimately invites you to uncover memories and eventually unleash pleasure.
Besides his work as a Chef, Dani García also raises awareness on the importance of nutrition through the various books he has published and with his cooking show on the main public television channel in Spain (TVE).
