Chef Andoni Luis Aduriz of Mugaritz clearly wanted us to actively think about the food, not just eat it. This was apparent in the way the staff engaged us in conversation. They checked that we liked everything and made us guess the ingredients of the dishes. It made the whole experience challenging, exciting, and a ton of fun. So many man/woman-hours of experimenting and preparation go into each dish. Mugaritz is on the cutting edge of cuisine.
Just a peek inside one of the prep areas.
And another peek inside their workroom (typically not shown to the public. Notice the stainless counter that has a cooking surface on it. That surface can be concealed so it is just a counter. Do you recognize the photograph in the background? It is the inside of a very old tree. Another stunning detail at Mugaritz.
Dining at Mugaritz was so much more than a superb meal. I discovered so much from the four hour tasting and tour intellectually, yet what made the biggest impression were the sensations inside my mouth. Truly unforgettable.
