In our new What’s Cookin’? article series we ask chefs from some of our favourite restaurants and cafes in Poland to share a recipe with readers that is perfect for making at home. Have fun!
Antonio Arceri is the closest associate of Paco Pérez, one of the most titled chefs in the world. They have been a harmonious duo for many years. Antonio comes from Italy, and is passionate about Spain. He has been improving his cooking skills with the greatest Spanish chefs for years having worked in Spanish restaurants awarded Michelin stars: Paco Pérez Miramar**, El Bulli*** and Azurmendi***.
Regarding his recipe, Antonio said: "I chose buñuelos [fritters] with honey, because in Spain cod is one of the simplest fish which we can prepare in many ways. This recipe is simple, easy to make and very tasty. And if you close your eyes and just feel the smell, listen to the crunchiness and feel the salty and sweet taste in your mouth... you can feel like you are in Spain..."
