Who am I?
My parents were Antonia Cantallops and José Torrens. From them I learnt the magic of cuisine and the work a restaurant has behind. They were my master chefs and inspiration.
I can say I was born and grew up in the kitchen: stoves, frying pans, spoons and plates. At a very young age I fell in love with the art of gastronomy, cookery, to stimulate what belongs to us by creating new sensations.
I have cooking in the blood. It is part of my essence, my passion, vocation and devotion.
I believe in our traditions, roots and they are present all the time, every day, when getting a dish ready. In addition, I work to create links, bridges between tradition and modernity.
Giving the Majorcan gastronomy new tastes, forms, sensations while keeping centuries of gastronomic heritage alive, is the basis of our cuisine.
We keep investigating every day, to make our gastronomy evolve, yesterday and tomorrow.
This is the spirit of Celler Can Amer, the place I was brought up in and where I learnt the skills to become a cook.
I am Tomeu Torrens Cantallops, a cook … and I just love our cooking.
