Award-winning Spanish chef José Pizarro has lived in London for 17 years and in that time has worked at some of London’s most prestigious Spanish restaurants including Eyre Brothers, Brindisa and Gaudi. In May 2011 he opened his first solo venture to great critical acclaim – José – his proudest moment yet. Later that year he opened Pizarro, a few yards away from José.
José’s style of cooking is bright, seasonal and fresh. José has published two books and in May 2014 José was voted one of ‘100 españoles’ – a hugely prestigious award which showcases the top 100 Spaniards around the world, based on how they have brought their talents to the masses and how they have shown their Spanish pride and love of the country through their work. Recently José picked up a Time Out ‘London Loves’ award for his tapas bar José and he has also won numerous other awards.
