“Sabor means ‘flavour’ in Spanish, and, above everything, flavour is what defines the food I make”… “The combination of ingredients and flavours that I use is the way I try to express these experiences”… “Unsurprisingly, I’m not precious about tradition. The more you travel and the more you taste, the more you discover all the different possibilities there are to cooking. There’s never only one way to make something, and no one method is better than another. It might sound obvious, but if I could give one piece of advice about cooking, it would be to be flexible and to cook with what you want to eat.” Nieves Barragán Mohacho (2017 p. 13, 14).
