As I touchdown in South Korea for the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics, my Sous-Chef and all round partner-in-crime Luis Martinez is also embarking on his own culinary travels.
Leaving behind the legendary Palma meat institution and his family bar La Cuadradel Del Maño Luis is off on his own food adventure that will take him to the Indian heart of Thailand.
Luis will shortly begin a three-month stage at Gaggan, the famed restaurant in Bangkok led by chef Gaggan Anand, who trained at El Bulli and made foodie headlines with his 25-course emoji tasting menu.
We wish Luis all the best in his food adventures, and look forward to our Asian experiences joining forces back in the Piers Dawson Private Chef kitchens upon his return.
Buen viaje Luis!
