Iñaki is primarily passionate about cooking. He always described myself as a lover of cooking. From when he was a child and his amona, grandmother in Basque, taught him how to cook to his days at the university studying the Anthropology of Food, traditional Basque cuisine has long been his obsession.
Twenty years ago, with his brother Mikel they opened the restaurant IRATI in Barcelona, today a benchmark in Basque cuisine in the city, with the clear goal of sharing traditional Basque cuisine all over the world.
IRATI was the seed of SAGARDI Basque Country Chefs, their most ambitious project with which they are trying to spread Basque food culture beyond our borders. It is a solid, high-quality, authentic venture which is now present in 9 cities.
