January 25, 2012. Madrid, Spain – The IE Poland Club along with IE Food and Beverage Club have organised an event with Wojciech Modest Amaro to present the upcoming business model of Michelin rising Star restaurant.

Poland, he told us, is “where nature meets science.” Thirty percent of the country’s land mass is forests, and it’s full of protected natural sites and nature preserves. It is also the home of the world’s largest food science laboratory, in Poznan. Amaro’s inspirations, he said, are nine: modern technology, cultivation, animal breeding, fishing, foraging, hunting, food design, food processing, and personal experience. He also does a lot of pickling, smoking, marinating, and fermenting. Amaro plans his dishes and menus around a complex system, dividing the possible sources of raw materials into categories — forest, lake, mountain, garden, sea, etc. He doesn’t believe in just four seasons. Instead, he makes a list of all the ingredients from each source that are in prime condition during each of the 52 weeks of the year. We think that his concept is so fascinating.

He also says “I’ve travelled around Poland for a year and half, preparing myself for the creation of my Atelier and searching for the best foods possible. Did you know that Poland is famous for its edible flowers, herbs, wild game and mushrooms and most Poles don’t even know it?”

The first Rising Star chef in Poland created cuisine where “Nature meets Science”. He studied original Polish recipes from the 16th and 17th centuries and took the dishes apart into single ingredients on his table.

Joanna Ciborowska Sánchez (IE Poland Club coordinator) and Bharath Kumar (IE Food and Beverage Club coordinator) along with the audience applauded Amaro for his innovative ideas provoking discussion.

Wojciech Modest Amaro is one of the most outstanding chefs in Europe. He has worked and developed his skills over many years with famous chefs of cuisine such as Ferran Adria (El Bulli), Yanick Alleno (Le Meurice) and Rene Redzepi (Noma). In 2008, the International Academy of Gastronomy awarded Amaro’s brilliant talent with the prestigious award of Chef de l’Avenir. He is the author of the bestselling “The Polish Cuisine of the 21st Century” rewarded with Grand Prix de la Literature Gastronomique in Paris. Throughout his work, he delves deep into the nature and rediscovers the secrets of Polish Cuisine.

Atelier Amaro is located in the beautiful surroundings of Agricola Park in Warsaw, which retains its park-landscaped character.

Atelier have realized the new idea for a restaurant serving food using only the best seasonal Polish products, culinary works of art are created every day. 

Atelier is a place where nature meets science.

Patricia Magdalena about IE experience

Written on February 11, 2013 by Campus Life in Other Activities

Patricia Magdalena, the Director of Programs at IE, shares with us her ideas about the IE experience:

Innovation Urban campus Networking Diversity Teamwork International clubs  Entrepreneurship Leadership YOU Future  #gobeyond Case method Humanities Change Social responsibility Professors Careers Community IE Online campus Events  Experience Student life Venture Lab Venture Day

“If we were to stay with one of all those words that clearly defines what the IE experience is, the choice is simple: YOU! The IE experience could not exist without your energy, enthusiasm, and above all, passion. Passion not only to learn and develop your management skills during these months of continuous learning, but also to enjoy the opportunity to belong to a single community, vibrant and multicultural. All of us at IE, faculty, staff, alumni, repeat with insistence that  this is a tough  and intense year  with long nights and many hours of study, but it is also very rewarding. New friendships are generated for life,  personal transformation is experienced,  and the discovery is made that a day could actually have 27 hours if we know how to use them, and that you can successfully balance the scales of personal and professional/academic life.

You are the soul of IE experience, this is not only manifested with fellowship in classrooms, work performance… but  also shown  in the extracurricular activities that you organize through clubs which generate groups  united by common interests, in the  launch of innovative entrepreneurial projects,  in  unique events & spontaneous laughter. Unforgettable moments which provide you with enough power to overcome successfully the program, leave an unforgettable memory of those months, and unite you forever to the spirit and Community of IE.”
