The recently presented Michelin Guide 2019 of Spain and Portugal has several students trained at the University School of Hospitality and Tourism Management of Sant Pol de Mar (EUHT StPOL). Ramon Freixa, Benito Gómez, Alejandro Sánchez, José Carlos Fuentes, Miquel Aldana and Joel Castanyé are leading restaurants with one or two (in the case of Ramon Freixa’s Madrid restaurant) Michelin stars. In total, 7 Michelin stars with a common history: the training of their chefs took place at EUHT STPOL.
On November 21st was presented in Lisbon the Michelin Guide Spain and Portugal 2019, which recognizes the best restaurants of both countries. Alltogether, Spain has eleven restaurants with three Michelin stars, with the addition in this block of the restaurant Dani García in Marbella.
Among the 25 restaurants that get the first Michelin star, two are settled in Barcelona: La Barra de Carles Abellán and Oria; to those we have to add the two Michelin stars obtained by the new restaurant Cocina Hermanos Torres, also located in the city of Barcelona. Thus, the Michelin 2019 guide keeps Barcelona as the gastronomic capital, with 31 stars.
