THE BIGGEST night of the year for the Iberian fine-dining world was held last night in Seville, at the Lope de Vega Theatre. Chefs from Spain and neighbouring country Portugal gathered for the presentation of the 2020 Michelin Guide to Spain and Portugal.
The publication celebrates no less than 110 years
The guide of this new edition, as published by the Spanish on-line press 7canibales, highlights 1,318 Spanish restaurants, 11 of 3 stars, 29 of 2 and 174 of 1. In the category Bib Gourmand (best value for money) highlighted 267 and in the Plato Michelin (quality cuisine, what was recommended Michelin), 837.
Andalusia continues to rise on the fine-dining scene: In 2009, the region had only eight restaurants with Michelin stars. In 2019, the number was 18 with stars, although there were 173 restaurants in the guide. The gala dinner featured dishes prepared by Michelin-star chefs in Andalusia, coordinated by Ángel León, whose restaurant Aponiente holds three stars.
Though perhaps the biggest news of the night was that Cenador de Amos in Cantabria deservedly won its third star. Angle in Barcelona gained their second star as did , Bardal in (Ronda) Málaga, cas in Valencia and Casa de Chá da Boa Nova in Porto.
We at Euro Weekly News are happy to inform that the other two restaurants to receive a second Michelin Star in Andalusia were:
Noor (Córdoba) and Skina (Marbella, Málaga).
