Montse Estruch, chef/owner of Michelin rated El Cingle restaurant in the province of Barcelona will be cooking in Dallas February 26. A friend of popular Dallas chef Abraham Salum, Montse joins Abraham and Alan Havens in the kitchen of Salum restaurant in Uptown to orchestrate an unforgettable evening of food and wine from Catalunya.
A graduate of the hotel school of Barcelona, Estruch continued her education in France and Spain working under the direction of Yanick Lefort, Pierre Herme and Frederic Bau de Valhrona and Fernan Adriá amongst others.
Adriá, considered one of the world’s greatest chefs and called “the Salvador Dali of the kitchen” by Gourmet magazine, endorsed her first book ” 25 years of El Cingle in Vaccarisses” published in 1999.
