En Lobito de Mar, nos preparamos para la temporada más importante del atún. Llega la primavera y viene de la mano de una tradición culinaria única y emocionante: La Almadraba. 

ALMADRABA AS A TRADITION

Almadraba is a traditional fishing method handed down from generation to generation, which involves catching migratory bluefin tuna as it passes through Mediterranean waters. This technique stands out for its 3,000 years of history on the coast of Cádiz.

Every year, as spring arrives, the local fishermen prepare their boats and nets for the almadraba season. This is a fixed fishing net, made up of mazes of nets and structures, strategically placed in the waters of the Strait of Gibraltar to intercept the passage of the tuna on their spring migration.

THE ALMADRABA IS ALSO SUSTAINABLE

Despite its age, the almadraba fishery has adapted to modern times, incorporating sustainable practices to ensure the conservation of tuna stocks.

From the use of selective fishing techniques to the implementation of closed fishing periods, fishermen strive to maintain a balance between tradition and conservation.

Once the fishing is done, the ”levantá” takes place, they select the adult tuna and release the rest of the fish alive into the sea.

FROM THE SEA TO THE TABLE

Before reaching Lobito de Mar, the technique of “ronqueo” is carried out; cutting up the tuna with a knife in a manual and artisan way. Experience this tradition live with us and enjoy exquisite recipes from our chef.

This is the process of cutting up a bluefin tuna. The ”ronqueo” requires skill and dexterity on the part of the ”ronqueador”, who carefully cuts the tuna into different parts: the head, the tail, the loins and the belly.

This process is not only a culinary technique, but also a ritual passed down through generations in fishing communities. The ”ronqueadores” are experts who know the anatomy of the tuna perfectly and know how to make the best use of each part.

See you at sea!

Holy Week in Spain is a time of religious fervor and deep-rooted traditions. From Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, the country becomes a hub of processions, devotions, and cultural activities that attract tourists and locals alike.

In Madrid, the celebration is marked by its impressive processions, such as the one by the Brotherhood of Jesus Nazareno, which heads to the Royal Basilica of Our Lady of Atocha, or the one by the Brotherhood of the Students, known for its sobriety and solemnity. Additionally, there are sacred music concerts and religious exhibitions in the Basilica of the Incarnation or the Almudena Cathedral.

On the other hand, Marbella, on the Costa del Sol, offers a quieter and sunnier Holy Week. In addition to its processions of the various brotherhoods, it offers a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy leisure time. You can enjoy the beach or take a trip to the old town, where you’ll find churches and chapels adorned for the occasion.

Both cities offer a rich selection of gastronomic options for those wishing to indulge in Spanish cuisine. In Madrid, you can try traditional Holy Week dishes, such as torrijas from BiBo or Tragabuches. In Marbella, you mustn’t miss out on the authentic espeto de sardinas, a local specialty.

Since last summer, when Grupo Mosh and Grupo Dani García announced their first alliance to shape the legendary Marbella beach club, this establishment has done nothing but reap successes. Thanks to its unique location on the beachfront and a name that reached its peak with Marbella’s beautiful people scene, La Cabane now regains all its brilliance in a new summer season filled with surprises.

La Cabane is located in one of the most exclusive areas of the Costa del Sol, just a few minutes from Marbella and Puerto Banús, within the space of the iconic five-star hotel Los Monteros Spa & Golf Resort. Blending tradition and innovation, this establishment boasts an incomparable setting that allows guests to enjoy excellent Mediterranean cuisine, practice their swing on the Golf Mile, or relax with some of the best views a beach club can offer in southern Europe.

Thus, the establishment shared by Grupo Mosh and Grupo Dani García will once again host the most exclusive views this summer, thanks to its terrace with pool view that complements the incredible gastronomic proposal of the Andalusian chef. He will carry out the culinary transformation of the space with a differential gastronomic proposal based on avant-garde dishes made with the finest raw materials and the unmistakable stamp of one of the most important chefs both within and beyond our borders.

A menu to Italy

When conceiving the creative proposal for La Cabane, Dani García drew inspiration from the quintessential Mediterranean essence that Italy exudes, thus the neighboring country is well reflected in its entire gastronomic proposal. To achieve this, the Andalusian chef traveled along the Amalfi Coast and to Capri, drawing inspiration from seaside restaurants, embracing the grace and Italian imprint in a fresh and relatively straightforward culinary proposal. The idea, as the chef himself acknowledges, is for this essence to be experienced from the moment one enters La Cabane and to invite transportation with each dish.

Creations designed to be enjoyed around the majestic pool that presides over the beach club, such as the salmon and caviar pizza; grilled zucchini and ricotta salad, or crispy prawns with basil. There will also be no shortage of dishes with a Mediterranean essence, such as San Daniele melon with Parma ham and Neapolitan cornicello ceviche, or iconic Italian dishes like pasta and risottos, highlighting fusilli alla nerano; cavatappi with caviar butter; Daniela’s white lasagna, or truffle risotto.

The grilled Tomahawk (1kg.) or marinated grilled chicken alongside back-cooked sea bass with lemon skin vinaigrette and grilled blue lobster are among the other proposals that close this union between sea and land, based on the highest quality products.

A Proposal and Good Rhythm

The musical entertainment and show proposal of the new establishment will be unveiled throughout the season, including highlights such as the most famous international DJs. An example is the opening event that will take place on March 23rd and will feature Luciano as the star of the night from an exclusive booth within the pool.

Furthermore, Circus Music is La Cabane’s eclectic and acclaimed in-house musical proposal, setting the rhythm with its versions on the terrace every Friday and Saturday from 2 PM onwards. Also noteworthy in their programming are the San Juan party (June 23rd) and the Full Moon Party (August 16th) as very special events to experience in such a remarkable place throughout the summer.
