Irreductible by Diego Guerrero
Action. Montagud Editores, a publishing house with more than 110 years of history devoted to publishing gastronomy-related works, has for the first time come up against the challenge of a book that is very different from the rest. Diego Guerrero for Montagud Editores. No filters. There are no holds barred as we investigate and recount the story of an indomitable figure. Indomitable, because he never gives up; he fights for his dreams and, having made them a reality, he has an insurmountable yearning for more. Because indomitable is someone who finds new paths when it seems that there is nothing left to achieve. Because there are no conceivable limits.
From an editorial standpoint, taking on a project of this sort implied many hours of work and months of like-mindedness – knowing that we were also enmeshed in that healthy dissatisfaction – until we managed to isolate the DNA of a Basque chef in Madrid who knew that reinventing himself meant stepping outside of his comfort zone. Diego Guerrero, alone. Unplugged.
Reaction. And suddenly the curtain fell, revealing its essence, its naturalness, that exposed brick, and materials as pure as a universal language. Transparency. The very thing that has allowed Diego Guerrero to be ahead of his time. He has unintentionally created a singular gastronomic concept in which every aspect (objective and subjective) adds up to form a unique whole. He has created a unique concept, and still has no idea how far it can be taken. Something never done before. This is what makes Diego Guerrero an extraordinary chef. He was capable of exploring his innermost self and turning what he discovered into reality. How long has this been going on? The book you have in your hands is the key to unlocking all the secrets that Diego Guerrero has never revealed.
Repercussion. Born: 1 July 2014; Name: DSTAgE. Weight: irrelevant. This is the first gastronomic delivery in which the true weight is conferred on the customers, and not the newborn’s ideology. And that is the greatness of this gastronomic concept. Everyone who gets close, whether for enjoyment or merely to visit, by design or not, has already become part of the DSTAgE universe. Like a mantra, Diego Guerrero cannot stop evoking the wonderful things that are happening to him. It is his way of pinching himself, and also of looking into his heart, so as not to forget the moments of doubt or anxiety he has endured. Living also implies suffering. But what Diego Guerrero captures in his social networks are the nice things that happen at DSTAgE. In a way we also feel a part of those nice things at Montagud Editores, having managed to capture the experiences and feelings of this chef in black and white. This feat is rounded off by the presentation of creations in this book that demonstrate why Diego Guerrero will be counted among the greats.
