Remixing food traditions

The Colombo brothers switch their locals, celebrities and artists, from Patti Smith to Jean Paul Gaultier, for the misfits saving traditions in every corner of the world, from Tasmania to the Amazon. 

 

Their first stop is Elkano, the iconic fish-based temple of the Basque Country.

Remixers is an honest search through gastronomy, one led by passion and a deep hunger for discovery and connection. Guided by a pair of transgressive Venetian twins, the Colombo brothers, we leave the comfort of their Barcelona universe -  Bar Brutal and Xemei- to hit a road filled with friends, stories and committed food lovers. 

The Colombo brothers switch their locals, celebrities and artists -from Patti Smith to Jean Paul Gaultier- for the misfits keeping traditions alive in every corner of the world, from Tasmania to the Amazon. 

 

Their first stop is Elkano, the iconic Basque grilled fish temple.

The spotlight:

· It is vital to keep food traditions alive.

· Alive means in constant transformation.

· This transformation respects time and space, at the heart of complex traditions.

· A Remix may push the boundaries of food traditions, and will keep them alive.

“Proximity, terroir, seasonality - 'reading the environment on a day-to-day basis working with what it provides, but never knowing what it will actually provide”

Aitor Arregui

“One thing is tradition, one thing is understanding all that is happening around you in order to coexist with your environment. But this is spectacular”
