Anyway we must start at the beginning. Azurmendi is always a breathtaking place, arriving in the taxi and walking into the large glass fronted greenhouse entrance hall. It's a hive of activity tonight. We are taken around the show garden upstairs which is such a charming way to begin. Our friends who are keen gardeners have lots of questions. We make stops and pick up little snacks, some hidden in the greenery. "Act One: Our Greenhouse."
Citric Bark - Peanut - Asparagus - Cotton Candy - Avocado Pit - Pickled Courgette.
Frozen olive and vermouth.
Oyster, tartar and geleé.
Tomato and eel. For some reason this stays in the memory more than others perhaps because it is such an unusual combination. It is one however that really works so well.
Sheep milk and black olives.
The Adarrak Menu costs us 175€ each.
