Leandro’s journey of food began at the age of 16 with culinary school in Leiria, Portugal. Since then, he has worked in many different countries across Europe and the Middle East.
The importance of traveling for a chef is something that Leandro holds in high regard, and it brought him to the Basque Country, were he worked at Mugaritz for three years. This influence refined his skills and instilled a passion for a different approach to cooking — led by creativity.
Living in London for the last six years, he has worked alongside top chefs including Nuno Mendes (Viajante; Chiltern Firehouse; Taberna do Mercado), Junya Yamasaki (Koya) and James Lowe (Lyles). He has recently finished a year-long residence at Climpson’s Arch and is now working on his permanent restaurant, which will be announced shortly.
Portuguese cuisine was formed by the 16th-century explorers who discovered different cultures and produce, influenced by the Celts, Greco-Romans, Germanic and Arabs. Portuguese gastronomy has evolved from this point and has become a cuisine of the world, leaving a lasting mark from Africa to the Middle East and Asia.
Leandro’s love for history and travel is reflected in his cooking, his creativity and his drive to balance the classics with his own new discoveries.
There is so much more to Portuguese cuisine than meets the eye.
