I’ve never wished for a nut allergy as much as I did upon the completion of a lunch menu at Riff. It seems as if the same master nut sauce was used to dress each of the 5 dishes (including dessert)— masked only by slightly...More

Excellent tasting menu. While we did not do the wine pairings, the seemingly endless arrival of specially considered dishes was such a treat. The quality service was impeccable, and even the two signature breads were a taste from heaven. Go! Enjoy!

Description
To be a professional chef is a magnificent thing. It is always a pleasure to be able to cook for people, for friends, family and for my children, who have been great fans as well as honest critics since they were small.
I love to cook at home, to invite friends and to make a Spanish 'cocido', in my own style obviously, or spatzle, a recipe from the Black Forest, which reminds me of my grandmother who was a phenomenal cook and my grandfather who I still remember collecting lamb's lettuce from beneath he snow. I always like to know the person I am cooking for, to know something of their personality so I am better able to achieve the aim of making them happy through the food that I prepare. For that reason my restaurant is small.
I enjoy going to the Central Market every morning and seeing the stallholders, my friends, chatting with them and feeling accepted as part of their world. I never cease to appreciate the architecture of the market building or the quality of produce throughout the changing seasons. Another extraordinary place is the auction at the port where I buy fresh fish. The buildings are ugly, almost third world,
I hope that someday they realise the great potential of this part of our city, perhaps even open it up to tourists. Imagine a stroll between the boats, between the fishermen, watching as they unload boxes of the freshest possible fish! Que calidad!

I cannot imagine doing anything else. I feel incredibly lucky to have found this profession. It sounds pretentious I know, but I am truly delighted to be able to dedicate myself to the cuisine of this region, with that produce, that quality, that tradition that I discover little by little, I cook Valencian food, but I cook MY Valencian food.
