Balfegó, the fifth generation of a great family that is committed to sustainability and respect for the species, offered a master class at the Institute where the sushiman Marcos Ramírez explained the different cuts of tuna and their uses.
Trained as a sushiman by great national and international chefs, Marcos has led the sushi bars of various top level restaurants ; a creative and innovative chef, with aesthetic qualities for the presentation of dishes and skilful at renewing menus and reinventing classic preparations.
During the master class at Le Cordon Bleu Madrid, he gave a technical tour of the best practices in the use of tuna and ended with a tasting where the attendees were able to appreciate the different cuts and different uses of tuna.
An interesting master class, which joins the "Off the menu" calendar of complementary training activities for the Institute community.
