Chef Emilio Sirera was born in Buenos Aires, 32 years ago. He grew up in a homestead surrounded by the flavors and aromas of homemade food, gathering with friends and family, made him value the richness and freshness of each product.
10 years ago he arrived in Los Cabos, and worked at Capella Pedregal (now Waldorf Astoria).
He continued his career in Gothenburg, Sweden, where he practiced in a 2 star Michelin Restaurant. Then he moved to Butan, working at Punakha Lodge, from Aman Resorts, a beautiful property next to the Himalayas.
