Always true to his roots: Llançà
Chef Paco Pérez’s passion for cooking was awakened at a very early age. When he was 12 years old he started his career working at the family-owned tapas bar, where he learned traditional cooking. From then onwards he combined his studies with working at different restaurants during the summer holidays; once he finished his studies he focused completely on the world of gastronomy.
During his training and learning development, he gained professional experience in France with Michel Guèrard, one of the forefathers of the Nouvelle Cuisine and holder of three Michelin stars. Returning to Cataluña he identified with the creativity of Ferrán Adrià at El Bulli, where he also gained work experience.
He married Montse Serra and together they took on the evolution of restaurant Miramar, in the village of Llançà.
