From mid-June 2013 this exclusive excursion will see residents escorted to Teide by one of the island’s expert astronomers to view awe-inspiring constellations accompanied by a bespoke hamper of Michelin picnic courses from Abama’s M.B and Kabuki restaurants.
Renowned for its gastronomic excellence, Abama is currently the only hotel in Spain with two Michelin-starred restaurants. These include the seven-starred Basque chef Martin Berasategui’s M.B. restaurant and Abama Kabuki, the Canary Island outpost of the Madrid-born Japanese fusion concept, which won its star at the hands of Canarian chef Daniel Franco in November last year.
Pushing the pleasure principal, the Canary Island gem of Abama has launched this celestial treat to awaken all the senses on a journey of taste and natural wonder. On arrival at Teide National Park, home to the third largest volcano in the world and well known as Spain’s highest peak, guests will be led to a prime star-gazing spot to experience breath-taking star showers and constellations at the hands of one of the island’s most knowledgeable astronomers.
Camping out in ultimate luxury, Abama’s Michelin picnic will include a unique fusion of its chefs’ signature treats, from Daniel Franco’s elegant and technical Japanese cooking with a Canarian flavour shown in his Usuzukuri of Cherne fish, to Martin Berasategui’s renowned Foie Gras and Rio Frio Caviar. A sophisticated menu of some of the chef’s most imaginative dishes will be presented in an eight course feast closed by a selection of cheeses from the Basque country and Canary Islands, accompanied by Champagne and to be enjoyed wrapped in the comfort of the finest cashmere blankets.
The Celestial Michelin Picnic excursion is available to hotel guests only and must be booked through Abama’s concierge. Price is 300€ per person and includes:
Multiple course Michelin picnic menu and Champagne
