Symbiosis. This is what the chef has achieved with 12 Michelin stars, Martin Berasategui, and state-of-the-art equipment brand BekoOne A symbiosis of mutual cooperation involving creation, invention and commitment to the future of the environment They have marked a professional and personal relationship that has lasted for over a decade. A necessity in the culinary process paves the way for a solution. An idea, a need arising from a highly sought-after kitchen is the springboard for a commercial product to become a reality. Let me explain: if you need a device that keeps dishes warm individually and no one has thought of it yet, Martin proposes, asks for it and Beko develops it. And he sends. Symbiosis.
As such, the house of Berastegui has over the years culinary creation and technological innovation, but is linked to its roots, to its mother and father, to the trunk. beginning, whole, was Bodegon Alejandro, the legendary dining house run by his parents and his aunt in old San Sebastian. “He was always my hero,” Martin recalled with emotion in a meeting with the press in which he made his memories the benchmark for his work: “I’ve never heard them complain about anything.” And his wellspring of wisdom: “He taught me to improve every day.” And always living in development, instead, without looking back, at the roots of the consonant and its values, but with his eyes on the horizon, without the lines drawn. straight, curved or sinuous. No problem. Does not matter. The result should be excellence for the customer. “I don’t want them to thank me, I thank everyone who comes to my house to eat with me… and they stay happy.”
Tradition, Culinary Excellence, Technology… and Sustainability. This is the next step – a rather big leap – that Martin Berasategui’s team has taken. An exclusive class kitchen with state-of-the-art technology in energy sustainability, recycled materials and an ecological desire. You backhoeInnovative Turkey-based brand with the successes of chefs from San Sebastian for over 11 years, A colleague is paving the way for him in a symbiosis that has turned into a laboratory of ideas. “Those who say that traditional cooking is better if it is done over a charcoal fire and an old pot, are lying. Cooking is precise, and technology allows you to do that and many more things so that the dish is exactly what you want, how you want it and that the intended purpose is served”. For this reason, Berasategui is Team Beko’s test bench and the projector of its ideas. “It’s a perfect relationship of exchange”, he says in Beko, in which both sides win because they follow the same path of improvement “through excellence”, both sides repeat over and over again. “From the age of 15 I just wanted to be an apprentice cook and all these years I’ve done that, learn”, Learn from family tradition and move towards excellence.
Be an apprentice I didn’t want anything else. Feed as much as you can. and to eat dinner. And do it “with respect to what one is doing and what it has to offer. Give the best of yourself”. In his genius, he admits that his sole purpose is simply to “transport happiness, take it to the hearts of people”. and your palate. The words of a happy transporter, the words of a cook who was on the verge of not being happy as her parents saw no future for the family business.
He had little effort to take that idea away from him after he was taken to a posh school as an intern. There he made his mark, but not because of his excellence as a student—”he didn’t pass a single”, he admitted amidst laughter—but because of his human quality, which led him to suspend all of the school. acquired complexity. of them so that they let him cook. This convinced his parents that he would eventually achieve his dream. Thanks to his talent, a dream come true. “And to the work of a lot of people, everyone who works with me.” In and out of the kitchen, the suppliers who help him run the business, “the ones who stock my shopping cart and my customers.” And Beko, their provider of cutting-edge technology “that never fails me,” acknowledges that.
