My name is David Lopez. I am a chef.
I was born in La Rioja, Spain, but grew up in San Sebastian. It is where I studied to be a chef. I have also lived in the UK, for more than a decade.
I have worked and trained with many prestigious establishments, ranging from three Michelin star restaurants to Five Star Hotels.
I am currently based in Bacolod City, Philippines managing my Tapas Bar and Restaurant, Txacho.
I have always loved food ever since I can remember. My biggest inspiration is my mother, who is a great cook. Another inspiration of mine is my father. Well….maybe he is not a good cook, but at least, he knows his wine and he loves food.
I love to travel. I love Asia most especially – the food and the culture here, is unbelievable. But don’t get me wrong I love the world and all its food, culture and everything.
In this blog you would see a lot of my own cooking as well as other stuff, including food from my travels, from restaurants, tapas bars, pintxos bars and a lot more.
I hope you will enjoy it and please write comments and feedback.
