Disfrutar just received three Michelin stars and was ranked #2 in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023.
After the publication of the restaurant’s multi-award-winning first book Disfrutar Vol. 1, this second volume by Oriol Castro, Eduard Xatruch and Mateu Casañas offers the continuation of an ambitious publishing project dedicated to their acclaimed Barcelona restaurant, this time tracing their subsequent stage, 2018- 2020, accompanied by a personal account of those years filled with undeniable challenges.
Disfrutar Vol. 2 showcases the evolution of a restaurant impregnated with creativity in every aspect that continues to lead the way at the international culinary cutting edge, creating a style and, for many, a school of its own. This new volume is also dedicated to a creative Catalogue that is truly impressive, both for the sheer number of new dishes – of which 96 already highly successful ones have been chosen for this volume – and for the development of genuinely innovative techniques and concepts. A culinary masterpiece by a restaurant that has steadily grown and never ceased to amaze with the track record it has earned for itself in such a short lifetime.
This book includes a selection of the best recipes from this period of the dishes that have already become benchmarks of the house. A must for all those who love gastronomy and creativity.
As a novelty, some of the recipes and techniques incorporate a QR code that link to the video of their execution.
The book arrives with the same format as Vol. 1, it consists of two different copies:
2018 – 2020 period.
