The chef with three Michelin stars, winner of the Golden Medal of Merit in Fine Arts, launches ‘Por amor al arte’, the next season at his restaurant in Dénia (Alicante). Are you going to miss it?
‘Por Amor al Arte’ (For the Love of Art) is the new culinary bid by chef Quique Dacosta, winner of three Michelin stars. You can enjoy it at his restaurant in the city of Dénia, in Alicante.
In case you still don’t know Quique Dacosta, he is a winner of the Golden Medal of Merit in Fine Arts and Doctor Honoris Causa in Fine Arts from Miguel Hernández University. This chef’s language is evolving, all while staying true to the foundations of his cuisine: product, region, harmony, flavor, an avant-garde nature, and fantasy. In this fashion, Dacosta is building a project that transcends to other artistic disciplines with its sensitivity and scope.
“My work goes beyond transforming food, much beyond feeding, aesthetics, harmony, technique, flavor, and the product, even beyond us ourselves,” the chef stated in his zeal to make diners active participants. With his desire to express himself in the kitchen, he mentioned that he is excited to seduce diners every day: “cuisine is my natural language, my profession, my passion, and the only way I can be in this life”, he concluded.
What is more, Quique Dacosta Restaurante provides a space that pays homage to Plénitude 2, a one-of-a-kind and inspiring place that invites diners to experience Dom Perignon’s second life in harmony with the chef’s cuisine.
‘Por amor al arte’: Quique Dacosta’s special guests
In a truly special season with the depth of his project’s scope, the chef has invited different
people from the art world to provide their plurality and different perspectives on the concept ‘Por amor al arte’, coming this season to his restaurant located in Dénia.
Such is the case of Manolo García, musician and singer-songwriter, who states that the love
treasured by different artists “flows directly into love for humanity, this generous and
compassionate thing that human life would be nothing short of unbearable without,” and that connects us with essence and authenticity, “helping us to put the prosaic matters that invade our daily lives to rest”.
Additionally, illustrator and writer Paula Bonet mentions “those few people who put their art
at the service of the rest of the world, all without forgetting who they are and with no aim of being indulgent,” but who, at the same time, “indulge us, illuminate us, and help us to think and to be better. Some of them even feed us,” she reflected while alluding to Dacosta.
In short, this new season promises to be an accurate portrayal of this moment in the chef’s life. He has positioned his three Michelin-star restaurant on the most important lists in the world, such as The World’s 50 Best Restaurants and Opinionated About Dining which, in recent years, has named it one of the ten best in Europe, holding the number-one spot in this ranking for two seasons in a row.
