Mugaritz opened the season on the 15th of April 2015, after devoting 4 months to research and creativity. We began a year which promised new experiences and teachings; trips, stories and people who would make it an unforgettable year.
On the 14th of April, our 10 first guests enjoyed our culinary offering thanks to You open the doors of Mugaritz, they were followed by more than 14000 diners from 80 different countries.
We have tried to match the efforts of who have travelled from the 4 corners of the world to experience Mugaritz by bringing our cuisine, philosophy and knowledge to Europe, North and South America and Asia. Mugaritz, led by Andoni Luis Aduriz, has travelled to: Switzerland, USA, EUA, Colombia, Philippines, Italy, Great Britain, Taiwan, Brazil, Argentina and Malaysia in the space of 11 months.
We have staged lunches and dinners in Mallorca, Miami (South Beach Food and Wine) Taiwan (Thomas Chien) and the restaurant Zaldiaran, among other locations. At one point Andoni even swapped kitchens taking the helm at COI (San Francisco) as part of the Gelinaz event.
In addition to the kitchens we have visited we have taken part in a diverse range of congresses (Madrid Fusión, San Sebastian Gastronomika, Madrid Fusion Manila, etc.) and talks in events (Advanced Computer Entertainment, El futuro por venir, etc.) and universities such as Harvard, for example.
This year Mugaritz has not only phisically approached a wide audience but also in the form of a documentary. On the 19th of September we released OFF-ROAD on the San Sebastian Festival, a philosophical and ethological documentary about Mugaritz where La Fura dels Baus distills the ideas behind Mugaritz.
Finally, we should not forget all those who have joined us on our journey: our complices, who have made Mugaritz what it is.
The curtain of Mugaritz comes down tomorrow until the 13th of April, but we will continue working behind the scene.
See you soon!
