The essence of the Mar d’Amunt
Conceived to celebrate the purity of the flavors of the coast where he gets his inspiration and evolves in search of excellence, Paco Pérez’s cuisine is a personal landscape where sea, garden and mountains converge. Without leaving the Barcelona panorama, we discover the subtle mixture of the calm and fury of the elements that define this legendary destination.
From the whitewashed town of Dalí, Cadaqués, to the Llançà of Paco Pérez himself, we travel through the place where the tramontana (north) winds begin: el Cabo de Creus. It is the landscape that chef Paco Pérez sees every day from his restaurant in Llançà, that steep ledge sculpted by the wind and waves. The same places where he ran around barefoot as a child, jumping and splashing from rock to rock, using his own hands to explore the exceptional products that the sea offered him: Mediterranean mussels, oysters, urchins, limpets with a few drops of lemon juice. That is where his curiosity developed, his respect for flavors, his love for a unique corner of the world.
