Raised in the Basque Country, Ander has always been serious about food – but it wasn’t until he moved to Dublin at 18 that this passion truly flourished. There, he began work as a chef and fell in love with the creativity and heat of the kitchen, a love that later took him to a trattoria in Milan and then back home to study at the Cebanc Culinary School in San Sebastián. After finishing his studies, he moved to London to work in the city’s first Basque restaurant, Donostia, and later Urban Caprice, a high-end catering company where he cooked for celebrities at exclusive events.
After eight years in the industry, Ander took some time to travel and eat his way around Southeast Asia. He explored 10 different countries, discovering new cooking techniques and devouring a new cuisine. The trip inspired him to go back to basics and perfect the art of baking, and he’s been obsessed with sourdough and choux since.
