Lara lived in Galicia for a few years, where she found herself truly connected to nature's gifts: the beautiful seafood and the freshest ingredients that the North of Spain has to offer.
Lara cooks with her heart and soul, which she believes are the main ingredients to success. She began to pursue her culinary journey at the age of fourteen. From working in modest cafes, restaurants, bakeries and ice cream parlours, it was a combination of wide eyes, discipline and curiosity that led her to work alongside some of the world's most prestigious chefs and at restaurant venues that she had always admired. Such as The Ritz London, where she joined John Williams’ brigade, Hide restaurant by Ollie Dabbous and the two-Michelin starred Claude Bosi at Bibendum.
