“Cuisine knows no boundaries, but it does have roots, and we are giving it the wings it needs to ensure that the sum of its parts provides unique, gastronomically imaginative, innovatively cutting-edge sensory experiences.”
Three Michelin star chef, Quique Dacosta, presents his latest culinary masterpiece in the form of DNA The Search, the new seasonal menu, exclusively available at his internationally acclaimed restaurant in Denia, Alicante.
The restaurant, included on the prestigious list of the World´s 50 Best Restaurants, and twice awarded the title of Best Restaurant in Europe by Opinionated About Dining, has this year opted for an innovative menu, born of an intense creative and investigatory endeavour. Inspired by the local and regional flavors of the Mediterranean region, the new menu pays homage to this area’s culinary roots, traditions, flavors and products – but, of course, in accordance with his Dacosta’s own haute cuisine style.
Boldly, DNA The Search goes beyond the traditional and popular flavours we have come to know from this region and instead delves deep into its culinary history in a bid to recreate and recapture flavours of the past, or more aptly flavours that are part of the region’s DNA.
All in all it’s been a busy few months for the world-class chef, who in January unveiled Enigma, his newest restaurant located inside the spectacular Palazzo Versace hotel, in Dubai. Dacosta has also designed a range of professionally inspired domestic kitchens, in collaboration with Spanish ceramic manufacturer Porcelanosa and, more recently, starred alongside legendary footballer Andrés Iniesta, in the latest advertising campaign for Arco – making him an ambassador for both brands worldwide.

Whilst he has also just published his hotly awaited fifth cook book, “De Tapas con Quique Dacosta”, containing over 80 diverse and delicious tapas dishes taken directly from the menus of his four world famous restaurants.
And with ambitious plans for the year ahead they’ll certainly be more news to come from the Spanish master so stay tuned to UK Spain Life to hear it first.
