Passion. Bravery. Independence. Essence. Respect. Happiness. Modesty. Effort. Persistence. Service. Generosity. Ambition. Boldness. Curiosity. And also Memory, because, as Jãvi Antoja de la Rosa, director of the Apicius journal of haute cuisine and Montagud Editores’s Publishing Projects, asserts, ‘Forgetting the past means losing your identity’.
These 15 values are common – as sort of ‘commandments’ – to all contemporary culinary projects where excellence excels. And this is true regardless of their location, the number of Michelin stars they have or whether they are legendary fine-dining establishments or emerging projects.
Apicius 28 shows in black and white – and via more than 200 pages, 50 creations, 200 dishes and almost 40,000 words – how these 15 indispensable ‘commandments’ of haute cuisine are followed to the letter. And it does so through the words of its 12 indispensable contributors.
