The Chef

 

Nuno Mendes

Nuno Mendes was born in Lisbon and grew up with a passion for travel and food cultures, in part inspired by his father and grandmother. He remembers being taken to a Goan restaurant in Lisbon when he was a child, and this formative experience awakened a passion for discovery and flavour that would come to define the chef throughout his later career.

Nuno Mendes attended the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco and, once qualified, received further training in Japan. The experience clearly left its mark; the unique idiosyncrasies of Japanese cuisine along with the use of bold ingredients such as raw fish, yuzu and umami flavours have distinct influences in the way Nuno Mendes approaches his own food.
