How did a cook, a son of restaurateurs, trained in the Escuela de Hostelería de Cambrils and in the best restaurants on the coast of Catalonia, arrive in Ikea? Jorge Gayán provides the answer: looking for a better quality of life and a balance between his professional and personal life.
The truth is, as Jorge demonstrates, that restauration is much more than cooking, it is also the food service, organization, management… and also a social and environmental responsibility.
Jorge has explored all the aspects of the catering industry and he has found his place as a catering manager in the Swedish multinational company.
