The chef

Javier Aranda and the gastronomy of emotions

Chef Javier Aranda is in charge of creating a culinary offering where modernity and tradition, technique and passion come together to ensure an unforgettable experience with its own identity for the enjoyment of the five senses.

Born in Villacañas (Toledo) into a family with a catering tradition. A cook from an early age and precocious chef, at only 25 years of age, he won Madrid Fusion’s Young Cook of the Year award. 

At age 29, he became the youngest ever chef in the world to receive a Michelin star for each of his restaurants (La Cabra and Gaytán). Javier Aranda’s cuisine stands out for having an identity of its own. He is known as ‘an ambassador for Spanish produce,’ a champion of responsible cuisine. A blend of textures and unique flavours where the produce is the protagonist in the creation of an impeccable signature cuisine.
