Potato Day is celebrated on 30 May, a worldwide recognition of this tuber that has been a fundamental element in the diet of various cultures throughout history. Originally from the Andes, the potato has conquered the world with its versatility and ability to adapt to countless recipes and culinary styles. In Spain, one of the most emblematic dishes made with potato is the potato omelette, a gastronomic gem that has as many versions as there are cooks.

Potato: universal ingredient

The potato is more than just a simple side dish on our tables. It is an ingredient that, in its simplicity, offers a blank canvas for culinary creativity. From purées and stews to salads and stir-fries, the potato adapts to all styles and tastes. Its ability to absorb flavours and its unique texture make it indispensable in the kitchen.

Tragabuches, located in Marbella and in the heart of Madrid, is known for its innovative and respectful approach to traditional ingredients. With a philosophy that combines the authenticity of Andalusian cuisine with modern techniques. Potato, being such a fundamental ingredient, plays a prominent role in their menu.

The potato omelette is a dish that arouses passions and debates all over Spain. The question of whether it should have onion or not has divided food lovers for generations. However, everyone agrees that the key to a good omelette lies in the quality of its ingredients and the technique of its preparation.

Tortilla de Patata con Cebolla Trufada: A Jewel of a Truffled Onion Omelette

One of Tragabuches’ specialities is its exquisite potato omelette with truffled onion. This dish is a clear example of how a simple ingredient can be transformed into a gourmet experience.

Preparation:

Preparation of the Potatoes and Onions: Peel and cut the potatoes into thin slices and the onions into julienne strips. Fry together in plenty of olive oil over medium heat until tender and lightly browned.

Mix with the Eggs: Beat the eggs in a large bowl and add a pinch of salt. Drain the potatoes and onions and mix with the beaten eggs. Add a dash of truffle oil to intensify the flavour.

Cooking: Pour the mixture into a frying pan with a little hot oil and cook over medium heat until the omelette is set on one side. Turn with a plate and cook on the other side until golden brown and juicy on the inside.

Finishing touch: If desired, grate some fresh truffle over the omelette before serving to add a touch of luxury and aroma.

El Día de la Patata es una oportunidad para celebrar la importancia de este tubérculo en nuestra dieta y en la cultura gastronómica mundial. Desde las cocinas más humildes hasta los restaurantes de alta cocina como Tragabuches, la patata ha demostrado ser un ingrediente imprescindible. Así que, en este día, disfrutemos de la patata en todas sus formas y celebremos su capacidad para unir tradición y modernidad en la mesa.

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.

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.

In addition to its processions of the various brotherhoods, it offers a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy leisure time.

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.

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.
