Meet the Chef

Nahúm Velasco
Originally from Mexico City, cuisine always occupied a special place in his heart; since he was a child. All important events took place in the kitchen of his home, which is why, at the age of 17, he decided to try his luck in the restaurant Mexico Lindo and Que Rico.
There he discovered that he would be a cook, and he later formalized his training at the Ambrosia Culinary Center. This was his gateway to Spain, where he served in the kitchens of La Taberna del Alabardero and Adoc in Madrid.
