Fernando Aracama’s pilgrimage in Spain
If you love Fernando Aracama’s food, he probably will be dishing up new surprises when he gets back from his pilgrimage in Spain.
He went to Basque, specifically at Akelare, Pedro Subijana’s three-Michelin starred restaurant.
Akelarre in Basque means Witches Sabbath. In Spanish, it also refers to the place where witches hold their meetings.
Akelare is found in San Sebastian, a seaside resort in Spain’s northern region that the New York Times says boasts of the most Michelin-starred restaurant per capita in Europe. The New York Times says that San Sebastian has 16 Michelin stars in just a 15-mile radius.
Here’s Fernando Aracama with the esteemed chef Pedro Subijana.
And the roast suckling pig he swoons over…a far cry from the lechons or cochinillas we are more familiar with.
