fernando y zaranda - Iberostarchef on Tour
Fernando Perez Arellano (Madrid 1978) developed
most of his experience working in different countries
where, in addition to the achievement of cooking skills,
he became polyglot.
Having trained in some of Europe’s best restaurants
such as: "Patrick Guilbaud "(Dublin)," Le Gavroche
"(London)," Don Alfonso 1890 "(Naples) "Maison Pic"
(Valence) and "Can Fabes "(Barcelona) he gained the
experience required to take on his own restaurant.
In September, 2005 he opened Zaranda, as tiny modest
restaurant in Madrid.
Soon recognitions arrived: "Best new restaurant in
Madrid 2005” from Spanish newspaper “EL MUNDO”;
same award was given by the American “Food and
Wine Magazine”.
After 11 months being opened, Zaranda received its first
star in the Michelin Guide and later, was also awarded two
rosettes in Repsol Guide.
Fernando Perez Arellano was named "Cook of the Year" by
television channel “Canal Cocina” 2008, "Premio al Grande
del Mañana” (“best young chef”) 2008" and "Premio a la
Innovación Conceptual o Técnica 2009” (cooking skills
Five years later, Zaranda and all his team faced a new
challenge moving their project to Mallorca.
In this Mediterranean island, the chef has found the perfect
place to develop his creativity within the walls of Castell
Son Claret, an historical building converted into a luxury
boutique hotel, member of “Leading Hotels of the World”,
where, as well as Zaranda, he looks after the other
restaurant of the hotel, Olivera.
In November 2015, the good work of Fernando and his
team was awarded with a second Michelin star for Zaranda,
which is nowadays the only restaurant in the Balearic
Islands holding this recognition.
While working hard to achieve his dream of winning a third
star for Zaranda, in his will to keep on growing
professionally, Fernando has recently taken on a major
entreprenurial challenge opening “Baiben” Restaurant, a
new project in the best spot of the succesful marina of
Puerto Portals, also in Mallorca, where guests can enjoy a
more informal side of his cooking.
