On the evening of 29th April (Wednesday), La Rambla by Catalunya welcomes 7 guest Spanish chefs to cook alongside hosts Ferran Tadeo and Daniel Gallo, to raise funds as Spain remains one of the world’s worst-hit countries by the Covid-19 pandemic. All proceeds from La Rambla’s 10-course “COOK FOR SPAIN” dinner will be donated to World Central Kitchen, a non-profit organisation founded by James Beard Foundation award winner José Andrés that currently activates local restaurants and kitchens in Barcelona to serve and deliver meals to frontline healthcare workers and vulnerable members of community.
The one-night-only collaboration will see some of Hong Kong’s most celebrated Spanish chefs joining forces to cook 10 courses of traditional tapas-inspired dishes together. The chef line-up includes Ferran Tadeo & Daniel Gallo (La Rambla), Borja Sanchez (Los Ibericos), Alex Fargas (Fofo by El Willy + La Paloma), Martin Carrasco (Rubia),Miguel Gallo (Doubleshot by Cupping Room), Jordi Alcaraz (Elite Concepts) and Edgar Sanuy (Pica Pica).
Guests will indulge in a feast of contemporary Spanish fare with a glass of welcome cava and post dinner drink for HK$1,800 + 10% per person. During the dinner, there will be a wine roulette where guests can donate any amount of cash for a chance to spin the wheel, and win a glass of premium wine (courtesy of sponsors Los Ibericos, Eurolink, Leading Nation, Carret Private).
“In Hong Kong, we have a very tight knit Spanish community that has been devastated by what is happening in our home country with the Covid-19 pandemic. We want to do something to help so I gathered some of my Spanish F&B friends in Hong Kong for one night to share our food & passion for a good cause. This is the least we can do for Spain,” says Ferran Tadeo, Executive Chef of La Rambla by Catalunya.
