Originally from a beautiful village, Talaván in Cáceres, Extremadura, José has now lived in London for over 20 years, and is often described as the Godfather of Spanish cooking in the UK. José spent his early years here working at some of London’s most prestigious Spanish restaurants including Eyre Brothers, Brindisa and Gaudi. In 2011, José opened his first solo venture, José Tapas Bar on Bermondsey Street. José Tapas Bar is small and cosy venue, inspired by the bustling tapas bars of Barcelona. The daily menu depends on what looks good at the market on the day and it also serves an array of delicious Spanish sherries to compliment the dishes. Later that year, José launched Pizarro also on Bermondsey Street, which has gone on to earn numerous accolades. Since then José has since gone on to launch two further openings in the Capital: José Pizarro at Broadgate Circle and pop-up restaurant Little José in Canary Wharf. Jose has also appeared on BBC 1’s Saturday Kitchen, Sunday Brunch, Weekend Kitchen with Waitrose and more, He is also a published author of a number of cooking books. Jose believes hat tapas is for all - it’s all in the prep and keeping it simple.
