When two young Catalan and Basque chefs met eight years ago, a steadfast long- distance friendship was forged. Chefs Marti Carlos and Iñaki Bolumburu found commonalities in their professional zeal. They pave their own paths in experiencing, learning from, and being inspired by their age-old culinary cultures. While they are both deeply rooted in their traditions, they also believe in expressing their stories using progressive methods with great respect for the produce – a shared aspiration to celebrate their heritage through modern-day renditions of traditional dishes.
This August, Restaurant Gaig welcomes Chef Iñaki Bolumburu for the restaurant’s very first 4-hands collaboration dinner. On 23 and 24 August 2022, Executive Chef Martí Carlos Martinez and Iñaki Bolumburu – a self-described nomadic chef – come together to present a contemporary showcase of Catalan and Basque cuisines. The tasting menu ($200++ per person) celebrates vibrant heritage flavours through four snacks and eight plates, expressed through innovative techniques and refined presentations.
Experience an immersive gastronomic display as the young chefs creatively demonstrate their love for their heritage – honouring their cultures through their culinary crafts and innovative renditions of traditional dishes.
