López’s Madrid restaurant is an intimate place renowned for its focus on local foods, served imaginatively. Although it has no Michelin stars, it is the sort of place beloved by restaurant cooks and López’s chef colleagues, offering a tidy seasonal tasting menu in which ingredients are served with notable simplicity.
In a dozen uncommonly thoughtful chapters, the chef here muses on elements that he feels are essential to his approach, including “luxury,” “honesty” “magic,” and “timelessness” enriching each chapter with relevant recipes. A treat for those who like their chefs to have an articulated philosophy.
