Rodrigo de la Calle, with biologist Santiago Orts, prompted the investigation of new species and the rescue of forgotten vegetables. New paths andand un heard of trails where opened between the fields of de la vega del Tajo and the citrics of Huerto Elche.
The essence of Gastrobotanica lies in the recovery and incorporation of vegetable products that have been forgotten, unknown and ignored but have not lost their profound tasty personality. They all turn green, thanks to the curiosity and the eager to know and learn about nature.
“In Gastrobotanica I found my way of utilizing products that had been unused or in extinction, never heard of products… being able to contribute to new taste registers to the palate… There was so much more field and I found it in a garden”.
