As curator on OpenSky José Andrés finds yet another platform to share his passion for Spanish culture, cuisine and the magnificent pantry of foods from Spain he will help customers transform into delicious culinary creations at home, with recommendations about tools, tricks and his favorite recipes, from the most traditional to the most modern.
The Chef’s initial selection features Galician Abella Honey, Fermín Ibérico Pork products, Marqués de Valdueza extra virgin olive oil, and Fagor cookware. OpenSky’s food section displays various categories of products and utensils that are reviewed on a regular basis.
