Chefs

Villa La Pena, Tarifa

Kate was brought up in Zimbabwe on a farm, producing beef, maize, sunflowers, soya beans and a vegetable garden with every variety of vegetable. She and her sister loved to pull up carrots and sweet beetroots and eat them raw while walking up and down the rows sampling succulent peas, beans, young broccoli shoots and rhubarb. A happy childhood which lead her to taking her own children on food adventures to Mozambique and the Cape. She's since travelled in South America, The Alps and back to Zimbabwe. She has a great understanding of nutritious, sustainable food which she enjoys sharing.

Tracy is originally from the UK and has been cooking around the world for 20 years. Her passion for cooking is related to the Ayurvedic tradition of India, where she lived and studied for 8 years. Now she incorporates health factors from this in to her cooking techniques and strives to encourage people into a healthier lifestyle.

Villa La Canada, Valencia

Angel grew up in Valencia and became interested in Mediterranean cuisine from a young age. He’s travelled extensively in South America, particularly Columbia and Peru, and his cooking style is heavily influenced by these countries. He combines traditional Spanish style with South American influences. As he’s learnt more about health his style evolved to look at cuisine increasingly from a well-being perspective. He buys all ingredients from Valencia’s impressive Central Market, which is locally grown, fresh and nutritious.
