Luis Miguel Rodríguez is joking when he says that he started in the cooking trade by helping his brother in a bar in Borja, his home town. He studied in the Escuelas de Hosteleria de iralbueno in Zaragoza and San Lorenzo in Huesca, and he experienced real cooking in the restaurant Las Torres in Huesca.

After working in several restaurants, he arrived in the restaurant Baobab which changed his mentality and opened his mind to new possibilities in the vegetarian and vegan cuisine as well as food preparation for people with food intolerances. That has been the core focus of his business since 2015: La Quinoa.

The recipe of pink tomato tartar as well as the Chef bio is an extract of the Golden Book of the Aragonese Cuisine first edition, an International Gourmand World Cookbook Award as the best book in Spanish in the “Local Cuisine” category.
