Juan Mari Arzak
Written by Aksel Ritenis

Juan Mari ArzakJuan Mari Arzak is one of the great characters of the culinary world. At 65, he may be the grand old man of Spain’s new cuisine, but he has the energy and dynamism of a man one-third his age. He learnt to cook at his mother’s and grandmother’s knees in the family business – the 111 year-old roadside tavern/restaurant “Arzak”. The restaurant is located in the big house that his family built in the village of Alza as a wine-cellar and tavern back in 1897.
