ANDALUCIA is quickly becoming a hotbed for Michelin excellence.
After the Michelin Guide 2019 took place this week awarding three new accolades to Andalucian restaurants, the region has become the fifth in Spain with the most amount of stars.
Undoubtedly, Marbella’s Dani Garcia stole the show, who was incredibly awarded his third Michelin Star, – the highest possible – while Pedro Sanchez’s Baga in Jaen and Juanlu Fernandez’s Lu Cocina Y Alma won their first stars for their prospective regions.
“Andalucia is growing a lot,” said head of External Relations for the Michelin Guide, Angel Pardo, following the gala.
And he is clearly right as the region now boasts an incredible 22 stars and 10 of those are in Malaga.
“Andalucia is fashionable,” echoed three Michelin-starred chef Angel Leon, of Aponiente and Alevante, after the gala.
