About Ricard Camarena
Ricard Camarena’s cuisine is marked by the local products that his larder offers him: the sea and the vegetable garden. The chef has a very special relationship with farmers in Valencia who grow for him, exclusively, the vegetables and flowers that he later cooks in his restaurants. He also has a very strong link with Mediterranean fish and seafood, as much of what he cooks comes from the nearby fish markets.
His gastronomic proposal is characterized by flavour, seasonality and respect for the product. Camarena’s cuisine is full of nuances: fresh, acidic, spicy, citric, bitter… Just like the logo that represents his restaurant: Oxalis. In short, a very personal, self-taught and innovative approach that he has been forging since 2000.
Camarena revolutionizes the way of making broths, juices, stocks with hardly any water and taking advantage of the humidity of the products he cooks. These innovative techniques are set out in the book ‘Caldos. El Código del Sabor’ which was published in November 2015 and of which two editions have been published.
In 2023 he launched the brand ‘LETERN Sin Desperdicio’ (LETERN Without Waste), which was born out of the need and obligation to use all the ingredients he cooks with to create new dishes and drinks. Zero waste is in his DNA and he has been applying it in his restaurants for a long time. With this new brand, customers will now also be able to enjoy it at home.
The Valencian chef Ricard Camarena has two Michelin Stars, a Green Star for Sustainability and three Repsol Suns for ‘Ricard Camarena Restaurant’. He is also ranked 96th in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants and is considered the eighth best vegetable restaurant in the world by the Smart Green Guide.
Ricard Camarena Restaurant is a gastronomic space located in ‘Bombas Gens Centre d’Art’ in Valencia, a centre dedicated to modern art and which was formerly an industrial Art Deco factory from the 1930s, and which was refurbished to house an important collection of contemporary art.
