The chef from Odiseo (Murcia).

On Monday 21, nine award-winning Spanish chefs will share stoves to prepare a unique proposal inspired by the cuisine of this Mediterranean region


That seems to be the motto in times of Covid and in those is Murcia, whose annual program as the Spanish Capital of Gastronomy was suspended by the pandemic, although now it is extending its appointment for 2021. And the fact is that Murcian cuisine has begun to move.


on Monday 21, at noon, the gastronomic restaurant of Odiseo

, the Murcian leisure space of the Orenes Group, will host

a menu for 18 hands!

prepared by great chefs

-whose restaurants have been (or in the past were) recognized with stars or other distinctions from the Michelin Guide- to vindicate Murcian cuisine, its idiosyncrasy and richness, and at the same time reactivate the gastronomy of the region.

As promoter and


of the Friends Reunion Menu

is Nazario Cano

, who in 2017 garnered a star in El Rodat (Jávea), a restaurant that he left last December.

At present he is in charge of several gastronomic spaces in Odiseo, where he develops a creative Mediterranean cuisine supplied by the great raw material of the Murcian garden.

José Carlos Fuentes, from El Club Allard (Madrid). Thanks to El Club Allard.

To put the idea into practice, Cano has surrounded himself with

eight chef friends,

linked to Murcian cuisine and himself and with a great culinary background:

Ade Bueno

(Rincón de Pepe, the mythical first Michelin star in Murcia);

Miguel Barrera

(Cal Paradís, in Castellón, who wears a macaron);

Tomás Écija

(El Albero, in Ceutí, and La Maita, in Molina de Segura, both in Murcia);

José Carlos Fuentes

(from Madrid's El Club Allard, with one star);

David López

(Rehearsal Venue, in Puente Tocinos, Murcia);

Miquel Ruiz

(El Baret de Miquel, in Denia);

María José San Román

(Monastrell, in Alicante, and a Michelin star) and

(El Retiro, in Asturias, also a macaron from the gala guide).
