Fire Vase by Martín Azúa and Marc Vidal

A clay vase with a lateral cut that turns into a small tabletop fireplace. The fireplace always has been associated with comfort and home privacy. We have produced an exterior fireplace for gardens and terraces. It can be a good complement for a romantic dinner under the light of the fire and the stars. “Two glasses of wine and a Fire Vase”.

Chef Marc Vidal is bringing a history of Catalan and French food to Boqueria. On this week’s episode of Chef’s Story, Dorothy Cann Hamilton is joined in the studio by Marc to talk about the original Boqueria- a vibrant market in Barcelona. How did the market influence Marc’s culinary senses at an early age? Hear about Marc’s training in France, and how French cooking differs from the Spanish tradition. Why did Marc come to the United States, and what did he learn through working in Miami kitchens? Hear Dorothy and Marc discuss tapas culture, and the idea of small plates in the New York City restaurant scene. Learn all about Iberico ham, bread and tomatoes, and other traditional Spanish tapas. This program has been brought to you by Whole Foods.
