Arzak’s cuisine is all about research, experimenting and a pinch of magic, all of which can be found in the lab. The lab, a place where creativity, ingenuity and inspiration wander freely about.

The team at the Arzak lab test flavours and textures. They reject some recipes and redesign others. They define new, seductive concepts and integrate them into the menu. The lab has a ‘flavour workbench’ with more than a thousand products and ingredients that are used to do research and create new recipes.

The Arzak lab, adjoining the restaurant, has cutting-edge technology and a team of alchemists who try what no-one else has tried before..
