“A return to our roots, a return to authenticity. Respect for high-quality ingredients. Every ingredient that comes through the doors at Sartoria Panatieri has been selected over hundreds of others that may seem equally good, but which are not. We analyze both product and producer, what they do and how they do it. We want to know whether they align with our standards for sustainability and quality. This explains our involvement in sausage- and cheese-making, which we sometimes do on our own, and sometimes in close partnership with artisanal producers.
Our tomatoes, our cheese, our herbs…, we want to know exactly who is behind the creation of each of our ingredients. Pizza is the maximum expression of our work as chefs, of our philosophy and the respect we have for our ingredients, and the time it has taken us to understand this timeless recipe and improve it. From the dough, which must ferment and rise, to each of the ingredients that go into it, including the oven itself and even the firewood we use”
Rafa Panatieri and Jorge Sastre.
The pizzas at Sartoria Panatieri are made using traditional methods and a wood-fired oven. We make our dough with organic hand-milled flour, and it is left to rise for a long time. Our pizzas are made using ingredients that are fresh, organic, seasonal and local. Some of the ingredients, such as mini carrots and basil, are actually grown on-site at the restaurant.
Sometimes the ingredients used in our dishes are local, while others are brought in from far away. These are unique products, made by the finest producers in the field. They are the result of an exhaustive search for the finest ingredients.
At Sartoria Panatieri, we make in-house cheese and sausage. The sausages are made using Gascón pork, a breed that is currently in danger of extinction, and which is bred at the Dpagès organic farm in Lleida-Catalunya.
The cured sausages are made using the same cuts of Italian meat, but adhering to the Km0 philosophy. With no artificial coloring, antioxidants or other chemical additives, all of the other ingredients that go into the product are also organic, including seeds, dried herbs and condiments.
We keep being the same. Pizza continues to be the ultimate expression of our work. Our training in haute cuisine, an environment of high competition and perfectionism has brought us here. There is no ingredient or dish, however humble it may seem, that does not have complex elaborations behind it, a centuries-old heritage and an infinite learning to reach perfection. We are obsessive and perfectionists.
