I was born in San Sebastian in the Basque Country, a land of great chefs. I soon realized that cooking was my passion, and I began studying cuisine at the age of 18. I started working in restaurants all around the country and know the secrets of this magical cuisine as well as some tricks for how to create art on your plate. I later decided to try working in some of Spain's most famous restaurants and had the honour of working alongside some of Spain's best chef (El racó d'en Freixa and Casa Marcial, each with two Michelin stars ). These were eight years of great sacrifice, and after this, I started a new career to follow my desire of doing new projects, but still related to cooking. I started teaching cuisine and curating the gourmet section of a local TV channel (L'Hospitalet TV), advising several bars' and restaurants' menus, and leading projects relating art and cooking. During this exciting 5-year season I harvested great experiences and memories. But besides all this, I was missing a place to cook my own way, a small place to host occasional gourmet dinners. I thought the best way was a home that allows me to combine life and this idea of private dining. I've spent a lot of time looking for the right place, but it was worth waiting and today, I am happy after 3 years of "Club Gastronomico Sant Rita". Being an EatWith host is a great adventure, which allows me me to share my cuisine with the guests in a very intimate and personal way.
