We can think of no better way to pay tribute to a chef who has made powerful and important contributions to the culinary world than with a tribute dinner in his honor. The dinner named “A Cuatro Manos” dinner series (which means “Four Hands”), already in its third year, saw fellow Michelin star chefs recreate iconic dishes by Ferran Adria in 2015. This year they will be honoring one of French gastronomy’s emperors.
To be held next month in Spain, 18 chefs with a total of 71 Michelin stars between them will use Andalusian chef Dani Garcia’s restaurant to bring guests on an edible journey. While the four-day event sees the spotlight shining on Robuchon on the first night with his most celebrated dishes recreated for guests, the second night will see Garcia take on a challenge. Without the help of modern equipment, the chef will be joined by Angel Leon and Paco Morales to cook unplugged.
On the third night, he will cook with Daniel Humm, and the fourth night, with Frank Sebastian of Horvath in Berlin. Here is the list of participating chefs and the number of Michelin stars they hold:
