Get to know me better

French chef with 8 years of experience in European Michelin stars restaurants

Born in France, I move to England when I was 18 and started to work in a michelin star restaurant for 3 years, then moved to Denmark. I worked in a 3 michelin stars restaurant, Geranium; an amazing cuisine, delicate and creative, reflecting the products of the Danish terroir. Then I spent 5 months in South East Asia. One of my favorite hobbie is spending time with producers, learning new skills and flavor. Recently I re located to the Algarve for the first time and it has been so exciting to discover what food the region has to offer

Chef Paloma's reviews

4.9/ 5

We booked Paloma for 2 meals for a group of 19 people on 2 separate nights, once for a BBQ and then for a table service from the Beef Wellington Menu. The first point I would make was Paloma's work rate was incredible. Quite how she managed to produce so many plates which were so flavour packed in limited time, evening allowing for prep is a mystery to me. There was clever use of textures, acidity/citrus and sauces throughout. We had vegetrarians in the group who were also catered for with innovatve and interesting dishes. In the lead up to both meals Paloma sent across pictures of additional ingredients that she had managed to either forage for in line with her ethos, or had acquired, asking if we wanted them included. Paloma even managed to source us wine which was again very good. Paloma presented each dish to us and you could clearly see the passion that goes into what she does. I cannot recommend Paloma highly enough and hope that she will again be available upon my return to Portugal next year. Thank you Paloma for 2 truly memorable nights of cooking!

Paloma was absolutely amazing, we had her for a 6-person 5-course dinner in a private villa with guests that have eaten at some of the best restaurants in the world and her food and ability were incredible! It was lovely to be able to talk to her about her experiences and her passion for ingredients! Would highly recommend her!
