A simple recipe from Chef Andoni Luiz Aduriz served at his restaurant Mugaritz; fresh apples coated in a mix of cardamom and Agalita, an edible white china clay that he also cleverly uses in his famous edible "stones" starter dish. Mugaritz has been on The World's 50 Best Restaurants list for 9 years and is currently listed #6.

- 4 apples
