Coming soon to The Staff Canteen: a series of videos featuring interviews and food from Mugaritz, the two-Michelin-star Spanish restaurant of chef-patron Andoni Luis Aduriz.

The first video goes live on 11th September and features Andoni Luis Aduriz talking about the origins of Mugaritz. The second video will appear on 25th September and involves chef Andoni discussing the art of texture. The third and fourth videos will be published in October and will show chef Andoni and his team cooking some of the restaurant's award-winning food. Located in the small town of Errenteria in the Basque region of northern Spain, Mugaritz is the brainchild of chef-patron Andoni Luis Aduriz. Aduriz worked for some of the greatest Spanish chefs including Juan Mari Arzak and Ferran Adriá at the legendary El Bulli before going on to open Mugaritz in 1998. Mugaritz gained its second Michelin star in 2005 and has featured continuously in Restaurant Magazine's World's 50 Best Restaurants list for the last eight years, holding the current position of 4th best restaurant in the world. At Mugaritz Andoni Luis Arduriz seeks to create an experience above and beyond just eating but a kind of synthesis between food, sensations, experiences, memories and emotions which he terms techno-emotional Spanish and which gives guests an all-round experience like no other.
