Quique Dacosta
in English/French or Spanish/Italian from C.H.I.P.S.

Quique Dacosta
2000 - 2006

Another great professional book for the chef from Spain!

QD 2000-2006 is a deluxe production comprised of both a book and a private website. The access code for the website accompanies the book.

The goal of this book is to paint a picture of Quique Dacosta’s Universe, explain his evolution and the historic transcendence of his work by analyzing the 3 pillars on which it is founded (Knowledge, Culinary Ecosystems and Research) and the milestones he has reached.

The reflections of the author, the technical developments and the narrative thread of the book reveal a critical, analytical vision of Quique Dacosta’s cuisine from 2000 to 2006. The commentaries, and in some cases the recipes themselves, are illustrated with images of more than 90 dishes representative of this period.

The text in this book is simultaneously in English/French or in Spanish/Italian. Please specify which edition you would like to receive when ordering.

The book:

  • 90 recipes
  • 7 introductory texts for each year between 2000 and 2006
  • 10 concepts (products, techniques or descriptions of ecosystems)
  • 2 additional texts, one about the environment of the Montgó Natural Park and the other regarding rice, authenticated by specialists in the field
  • High quality, full color photos throughout the book illustrate the finished dishes
  • and much more - see table of contents below

Features of the website:
