Inspired by some natural products of Canarian gastronomy, the chef has proposed to elaborate the five recipes based on seasonal fish with citrus, vegetable salad with slices of ham, Cured cheese and herb vinaigrette, instant seafood consomm with vegetables and prawns, mushroom and veal risotto with blue cheese, almonds and sautéed vegetables.
According to Serafín Romero, who has resided in La Palma for some years but proudly boasts of being "of Ingenio like Amaro bread", his intention "is to demonstrate that anyone with a elementary cooking notions You can do at home without any problem some different dishes that have in common that are healthy. That is the most important. It's healthy cooking. "
But is it more expensive to eat healthy? Or do we buy unhealthy food for reasons that are not economical? For Romero, who currently runs his tasca-gastrobar Cinnamon on the island of La Palma, "in many cases the price of food is not, by far, the most important factor in the nutrition of a person." While there are studies that show that diets with a healthier profile are , in general and on average, more expensive than less healthy ones, with the same budget you can make a healthy purchase at very competitive prices and, in many cases, cheaper than unhealthy foods, "says the chef.
