Taste 1973 Restaurant (Tenerife)

After 18 years in the Canary Islands, the Argentinian chef Diego Schattenhofer began a new phase at the hotel where he had been working as an executive for 12 years, with the project he had been working on for two years: Taste 1973.

Schattenhofer never stopped training and wanting to learn from the best in the world, as in the case of his teacher and mentor, the Catalan chef based in Argentina, Joan Coll, as well as Pablo Massey and Francis Mallman, also in Argentina. Since he has been in Spain, he has gleaned a lot from the greats, such as Martín Berasategui, Francis Paniego, Juan Pablo de Felipe and Paco Pérez.

From 2005 to 2010 the chef took part as a speaker at Madrid Fusión, either with a team of chefs from Astrochefs, or as one of the representative chosen by the Cabildo de Tenerife (Island Council of Tenerife), as part of the island’s gastronomy plan. At this congress, in 2011, he won the Award for Best Technological Innovation for his ‘Flying Tapas’, also achieving a commendation at the Flemish Primitives in Belgium.

Since 2007, he has been part of the Astrochefs project, together with engineers Bertrand Lefort and Javier Pancorbo and astrophysicist Hervé Bouy, who are united in their search for scientific solutions applied to the world of gastronomy. In addition, he has given presentations in different forums, including invitations from Heston Blumenthal in 2010 in the United Kingdom, Dominique Persoone in Belgium, Cocinarte in La Laguna, Culianria ’16, Hecansa…
