About The Recipe for Balance

Ricard Camarena bases his cooking on València’s orchards. His constant search for harmony between flavors has seduced critics and crossed borders. Alongside Mari Carmen Bañuls, the brains behind the restaurants, they make an unbreakable team that has overcome great adversity to reach success, endorsed by two Michelin Stars and the recent National Gastronomy Prize. Just as the couple reach an equilibrium of success, the outbreak of COVID-19 force them to face an unprecedented challenge: re-open their restaurants with the uncertainty that this “new normal” imposes. Unaware of the pandemic, València’s orchards have continued their natural cycle of growth.

Recommended for Ages 10+

Ricard Camarena basa su cocina en las huertas de València. Su constante búsqueda de la armonía entre sabores ha seducido a la crítica y traspasado fronteras. Junto a Mari Carmen Bañuls, la mente detrás de los restaurantes y madre de Ricard, forman un equipo inquebrantable que ha superado grandes adversidades para alcanzar el éxito, avalado por dos Estrellas Michelin y el reciente Premio Nacional de Gastronomía. Justo cuando la pareja alcanza un momento de mucho éxito, el brote de COVID-19 los obliga a afrontar un reto sin precedentes: reabrir sus restaurantes, apelando a esas huertas de València que han continuado su ciclo natural de crecimiento, a desarrollar nuevos protocolos para preparar la comida y servir a los comensales y en definitiva navegar la incertidumbre que impone esta “nueva normalidad” para salir adelante.
