Fernando P Arellano
Award-winning chef Fernando puts his culinary visions into practice aided by his experience behind the stoves of many famous restaurants. These include among others Patrick Guilbaud (Dublin), Le Gavroche (London), Don Alfonso 1890 (Naples), Maison Pic (Valence) and Can Fabes (Barcelona). There he acquired the necessary skills and knowledge before launching his own project at the age of only 27.
In September 2005 he opened the Zaranda restaurant in Madrid. Success was not long in coming. The daily newspaper El Mundo and the Food and Wine Magazine referred to the Zaranda restaurant as the revelation of Madrid. The Michelin Guide awarded it one star. The Repsol Guide gave it two Suns. In 2008, the Lo Mejor de la Gastronomía guide presented it with the Al Grande del Mañana prize for its pioneering efforts and in the following year with the La Innovación Técnica y Conceptual prize for its cutting-edge technical concept, awarding it 8 out of a total of 10 points.
