I’m 26 years old and from Malaga, a coastal city in southern Spain.

My first memory was of food because my family has always cooked very well. And when I was only six years old, I asked my parents to give me a toy kitchen to reproduce what my mother and grandmother used to do.

After finishing my general studies, I studied at the best cooking school on the Costa del Sol: “La Consula”. They didn’t admit me the first year, but I was clear that I didn’t want a profession other than that, so the second time I came in, I was accepted, and those were the best years of my life at that school.

To this day, looking back, what motivates me the most is continuous learning and growth; working in hamburgers, fine dining restaurants, luxury hotels, and Michelin-star restaurants made me what I am today, and being a sous chef right now.

Who knows where I’ll be tomorrow or which cook I’ll work for?
What I do know is that I am going to enjoy the journey.

Thank you all very much, and don’t forget to visit Malaga.
