Joseba Lasa, a resident of London for nearly 10 years, is one of the Basque Country’s most dynamic young chefs. At only 33 years of age, he has catered for the World Economic Forum at Davos, three Royal Family weddings and some of the world’s best-known celebrities and politicians, from the Beckhams, Theresa May, Kate Moss, and Hugh Grant to Jimmy Carter and Elton John, just to name a few.
As London’s youngest ever executive chef in the catering industry, he is a veritable expert at designing innovative menus and unique dishes.
Joseba grew up deep in the Basque mountains and brings a Basque sensibility to his cooking: utmost reverence for great ingredients, a commitment to excellence, and a profound respect for tradition. He sees food as an experience for the mind as well as the senses, an approach that has its roots in his childhood, which he spent cooking alongside his Dad in the family restaurant and learning the secrets of traditional Basque cooking.
Before joining Mimo, Joseba was London’s youngest Executive Chef and led the culinary team at Urban Caprice catering some of the city’s largest and most glamorous events, such as the Cannes Lions festival, the Evening Standard theatre awards, and more. Urban Caprice operates at the high end of the catering industry and is part of Caprice Holdings which counts Scott’s, the Ivy, Sexy Fish and Le Caprice amongst its restaurants. He has also worked with the Portland Hospital for Women and Children. Before moving to London in 2011, he trained with the prestigious CEBANC Higher School of Cuisine and Hospitality based in San Sebastian, receiving a Masters Degree in Hospitality Management. His Basque ‘pintxos’ have received multiple awards for Best Pintxo in his hometown.
