Martín Berasategui (in their shoes)

The voice in Spanish of Martín Berasategui, the Spanish-speaking chef with the most Michelin stars, reminding institutions that gastronomy “has given all” in building this economic and internationally renowned lighthouse, for which it has asked the Government put itself “in the shoes of the hoteliers”.

The chefs Ferran Adrià, Martín Berasategui, Joan Roca, Ángel León, Andoni Luis Aduriz and Susi Díaz have demanded this Wednesday the Government a Marshall plan for the gastronomy sector, from the producers to the small bar, and “empathy” to refloat it before the situation generated by the pandemic.

In a virtual press conference called by the Hospitality of Spain, which has included the minute of silence in memory of the victims, these representatives of haute cuisine in Spain have spoken on behalf of this “heterogeneous” sector, which covers production, distribution, bars, cafes, patisseries, traditional restaurants and haute cuisine to remember their economic, cultural and social contribution.

That Marshall Plan, which evokes the one promoted by the United States to help Europe after the Second World War, contemplates basic measures such as the flexibility of the ERTE and its extension until the end of 2020, that the State increases to 90% the endorsement of the ICO credits, reduction of VAT on hospitality to four percent or bonds to promote local spending, as other European countries have done, among others.

The chefs have offered, at the request of Ferran Adrià, to participate for free in relaunching campaigns of Spanish gastronomy in the country and abroad, while the President of Hospitality of Spain, José Luis Yzuel, has promised to promote an “internal project dedicated to haute cuisine” involving national, regional and local administrations due to its weight in the economy and tourism.
