D*NA is an original idea of Quique Dacosta. The chef is a symbol of Denia cuisine with his understanding of food that unites tradition with the avant-garde.
Cooks, producers, artisans, restaurateurs, will be showcasing the finest that Denia and the Alicante region has to offer in the world of cuisine.
'Culture makes sense if it is shown and shared' - Quique Dacosta.
