my passion

If thereís one thing about Josť that is even bigger than his Paellera (Paella pan), itís his passion for authentic Spanish food. A native of Galicia - a region of Spain that is renowned for its culinary excellence, Josť believes that the secret of great cooking is to be found in the traditions of regional cooking - and particularly in domestic kitchens - the world over..

"It is not about being exotic for the sake of exotic, or expensive for the sake of impressing. For me, Paella is food for the people, the preparation and cooking are all part of the excitement. The anticipation as the beautiful aroma circulates and then serving it up and everybody tucking in with great relish. As a chef it is what makes it all worthwhile."
