All about Luis Salinero

Luis Salinero is one of the most outstanding chefs at present. He was described, at the age of only 23, as the best chef in Castilla y León by Ferrán Adrià.

He has a long career on his back working in haute cuisine restaurants, luxury hotels and projects with large European and international companies.

Even though he was born in Paris (where his father officiated as chef in prestigious restaurants for more than 15 years), his hometown is Aranda de Duero.

Son of a mother from Riaño, León, and a father from Fuentespina, Burgos, he joined his parents at a very early age in the family restaurant Chef Fermín, where he started learning the tricks of the trade (the disciplines and foundations of the French and market cuisines).

At the age of 18 he started studying at the Escuela Superior de Restauración y Hostelería in Barcelona.  

Higher technical degree in Restaurant and Hotel Management conferred by the Escuela Superior de Hostelería de Barcelona (1993-1996).
