What are your favourite dishes and why?

A good surf and turf with a touch of romesco, because it is my landscape on a plate, made from local products and with a sauce that identifies us."

If you had to tell us a secret, what would it be?

Be passionate about everything that you do. In our profession, you won’t get anywhere if you don’t have passion and enthusiasm for what you do. You have to think about and empathise with your customers to know what they would like to find in your restaurant or what they would like you to surprise them with.

Can you give us one of your incredible recipes?

I have selected a dish that is very successful, our brownie, but the version we make for Halloween. Brownie is one of the special recipes that we prepare at PortAventura World for Halloween and it has been very popular with our customers for many years. It’s called “Sweet Coffins”.


  • 80 g cocoa powder
  • 300 g butter
  • 300 g icing sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 120 g flour
  • 80 g of shelled and chopped walnuts
  • Pinch of salt
  • Your favourite ice cream (we recommend vanilla or strawberry)
  • White chocolate for decorating



  1. Preheat the oven to 160°.
  2. Line the mould with baking paper or brush it with melted butter and lightly sprinkle with flour.
  3. Melt the butter in the microwave.
  4. In a bowl, beat the eggs with the icing sugar until you get a pale batter.
  5. Add the butter to the beaten eggs while stirring.
  6. To this mixture, add the sifted dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder and a pinch of salt).
  7. Mix very well to avoid lumps. Stir in the walnuts.
  8. Pour the batter into the mould and bake for approximately 40 minutes.
  9. The brownie should be crisp on top and gooey in the middle. Take out of the oven and leave to cool.
  10. When it has completely cooled, cut the brownie in the shape of a coffin. I recommend that you make a template, so they all turn out the same.
  11. Melt a small amount of white chocolate and put it in a pastry or icing bag to add the crosses or inscriptions when plating.
  12. To serve, warm up the brownie portions in the microwave, decorate them with the white chocolate and, finally, add a scoop of your favourite ice cream. Since it’s Halloween, strawberry, red fruit or vanilla ice cream always goes well.


We are waiting for you to taste this and many other dishes this Halloween 2021 at The Iron Horse restaurant!
