Get to know me better

vivo para comer, no como para vivir

Tengo 36 años de experiencia en diferentes cocinas.

Nací en el Mediterráneo

Culinariamnete me inicie en La Odisea de Barcelona.

De ahí pase por Can Bosch en Cambrils donde aprendi todo lo concerniente al trato de pescados y mariscos ademas de arroces y paellas.

Bini Aran en Arites fue mi estreno como chef , luego Bini Ali en Menorca , Jagaro en Mao, La mallola,, Cafe de la República y salte el océano para enrolarme como jefe de partida en el Dorado Petit New York y de ahi a Panama( octubre de 1991) hasta la actualidad.

Desde ese entonces me he dedicado a cocinar comida estilo español con ingredientes panameños y españoles

Me gusta hacer felices a mis comensales con toda clase de platos .

Me encanta improvisar con ingredientes que encuentro en cada sitio que visito.

Soy bastante generoso en porciones y en cantidad de variedades de platos.

El sabor es lo mas importante para mi.

Me encanta cocinar al aire libre ya sea en barbacoa o en fogones de leña o carbón, la caja china también me gusta.
