Projecting Monterrei to the world

Through his experience and curiosity, Jose Luis Prieto, Chef and Manager of O Segredo do Retiro, seeks to bring part of the current culinary arts and develop a modern proposal with a clear base in the culinary tradition of Monterrei.

Since he was little he was always fascinated by avant-garde cuisine from a visit to Casa Solla Despite starting with a career in hotel management, he decided to focus on cooking in Germany where he worked in various restaurants in Berlin such as La Mano Verde, under the guidance of Mark Ziegler, who had just been a souschef at Fischer Fritz with the famous Christian Lohse to later make the leap to Sydney, Australia, where after a couple of experiences he would end up working as assistant to Matt Taylor at The Wine Library, awarded with a hat. Determined to find his own formula, he returns to his native Galicia to elaborate this proposal with the affection that this implies and the dedication necessary to carry it out.
