News from Macarena de Castro

Macarena de Castro & Carme Ruscalleda

We have been catching up with Macarena de Castro, local Mallorcan chef and owner at Jardin Restaurant in Alcudia, awarded a Michelin star earlier this year.

Macarena well deserves the Red Guideā€™s accolade and continues to work tirelessly exploring her passion for cuisine, both here and in Mallorca as well as much further afield.

Her restaurant, Jardin, is closed during the winter months of the year, so she let us in on what keeps her busy when her kitchen is closed to the general public.

This year Macarena travelled to Las Vegas, where she worked alongside Chef Julian Serrano at none other than the Bellagio Hotel, and Santo Domingo, where she hosted a conference for local dignitaries and the Spanish ambassador.

On returning to Mallorca in March she welcomed a very guest to her restaurant. Carme Ruscalleda is the first chef in Spanish to be awarded 3 Michelin stars, and Macarena was honoured to have her at Jardin.

Jardin is now open again for the season and is well worth a visit.
