Michelin***: new Paella's for London
Selling a Superyacht with the best Western architecture in China is like selling spanisch Paella in the United Kingdom.
While Chinese clients need more a catering temple interior for their business friends than a cruising experience, British Gourmets like to enjoy more their less famous foods than experience new horizons. If you think different, just search on Google!
As a result Quique Dacosta (*** Michelin Chef from Denia, Spain) had to "individualize Spanish plates" to the British taste to make his new "Spanish" restaurant in London successful.
ARROS QD 64 Eastcastle St, Fitzrovia, London, prices between 60/80 euros per person arrosqd.com
According to Quique Dacosta in an interview by @JCCapel from elpais.es:
What is costing us the most is the "Socarrat" (the rice that gets crunchy and forms a crust at the bottom of the pan, a key for many who appreciate good paella). They often return paellas because the rice is burned.
We explain that this challenge is a fundamental part of the dish, that paella is not a risotto, that Socarrat is not accidental but intentional, and that it provides special notes. Even so, they reject us. Only some are getting used to it."
The new Food Temple "Arros QD" is created on two floors (1.000 m2) and decorated by interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán. More than 40 partners invested about 4.3 million pounds and 90 jobs have been created so far.
Be a missionary or adapt the market?
I am sure he will be flexible but he won't select a "Thermomix" solution! As he is a great ambassador for the Spanish cuisine let's wish him lots of SUCCESS! 1926p

Mass tourism in Denia, Spain
Denia, a tourism village south of Valencia with access to Ibiza had to limit the access to a seaside Cave "Cova Tallada". The new regulations oblige the visitor to register with their National Identity Document and only allow five tickets for each registered DNI. In addition, reservations for tickets only can be made up to 15 days maximum. Reservations can be done only in Spanish or Valencian.
Many times I have made the route with groups of 20 to 80 people of different ages. (1km / 20-50 min) Some parts to access the cove have been improved lately as being dangerous. As a result everybody can have a walk to have a good time and leave their garbage. 1111
