Chef Airaudo was born in Argentina to a family of Italian immigrants and, since the age of 18, has worked around the world including Mexico, Peru and in a number of European countries. In Europe he gained experience in legendary restaurants such as Arzak (3*Michelin) in San Sebastián, The Fat Duck (3*Michelin) near London and Magnolia (1*Michelin) in Italy.
In May 2015 he opened La Bottega, a forward-thinking modern trattoria in the historic part of Geneva. Just four months later, in October 2015, the restaurant received its first Michelin star, an extraordinary achievement. Now Airaudo has created his first solo restaurant in the global culinary centre of excellence of San Sebastián, taking him back to where his European adventure originally began.
As he explains: My family loves San Sebastián. I love San Sebastián. We’re happy here which is the best possible reason to build this restaurant. At the same time, this magical town has the eyes of global chefs and foodies upon it, which in a way makes it possible for me to offer my food to the world.
After 14 years of cooking and seeking out culinary excellence all over the world, the nomad chef has finally found his home – even naming the ambitious endeavour after his 2-year-old daughter, Amelie, which means this time he’s here to stay. This time, it’s personal.
Our goal is to offer a unique experience, creating perfect harmony between seasonal products and technique in the kitchen, expressing itself to its maximum.
