WORLD’S BEST CHEFS CREATE DISHES
EXCLUSIVELY FOR IBÉRICA
Last week saw the publication of the annual list of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants and if you don’t
already have a reservation at the number one eatery El Cellar de Can Roca then it’s probably too
late. Big thanks then to Ibérica who have gathered some of the most celebrated Spanish, Portuguese
and Latin American chefs, the majority of which are fresh from recently being named as one of the
World’s Best, to create an exclusive collection of signature tapas dishes.
For Iberica’s ‘Great chefs, Great Causes’ campaign (8 June – 23 August), each acclaimed chef has
entrusted a secret recipe to Ibérica’s Michelin-starred executive chef Nacho Manzano and group chef
César Garcia; from the world’s number one El Cellar de Can Roca’s squid parmentier with smoked
Spanish paprika through to razor clams with yellow pepper and black quinoa from Virgilio Martinez
of Central in Peru (No.4). Other participating chefs include Andoni Luis Aduriz of Mugaritz (No.6),
Juan Mari Arzak of Arzak (No.17) and Bittor Arguinzoniz of Asador Etxebarri (No. 13).
Dishes start from just £7 and all proceeds of the profits from the menu will be shared equally
amongst the chefs’ chosen charities, which include Fundaciò Oscobe, Unicef Spain, Action Against
Hunger Peru and UK and FarmAfrica.
Each tapas dish will be rotated on a weekly basis throughout the London restaurants; find the full
menus below. A selection of the dishes will be available throughout the campaign in Manchester.
Also in a UK first, Ibérica will exclusively stock a range of gourmet products in their delis from the
end of June. Products include the La Cala range by Albert Adrià featuring white tuna belly; razor
clams in olive oil; and albacore belly in escabeche sauce as well as Rocambolesc Ice Creams by
Jordi Roca of El Cellar de Can Roca.
