article JosePortrait06 1
1. Tesi: Dear Jose, you are the Chef and owner of Pizarro Restaurant in London. Can you please tell me about the concept and history of your restaurant? 
Jose:  I named Pizarro after my grandfather’s surname and the bar he owned a long time ago in Cáceres.  I decided to call Pizarro in memory of him. I already had Jose, the little sherry bar in the same street.
The cooking at Pizarro is simple, fresh food made with seasonal ingredients and a lot of love.  You’ll find modern twists on classic Spanish cooking.

Jose: Given the fact that the food offering is large you always needs to be one step ahead, such as creating a new dishes and using new ingredients.  It’s important to get out and see other restaurants to see what they’re doing too.  Good competition is healthy!
