Born in Vigo in 1973. In 2002, Pepe Vieira receives the Best Galician Cook Award and in 2004 he joined the team of kitchen teachers at the Centro Superior de Hostelería de Galicia (Higher School for Restaurant Business), position he has been in for several years. He is also the founder of the Nove Group, created to spread the culinary culture of Galicia and enhance visibility to haute cuisine.
With a background acquired in numerous cuisines of the world, Pepe Vieira’s cook is a risky search for authenticity. The Pepe Vieira Restaurant has a Michelin green star and two Michelin stars and has recently open a Luxury Relais & Châteaux hotel.

Pepe Vieira’s cuisine is authentic, racial and full of meaning. It goes beyond culinary and tells us a story with each dish. A unique experience that will allow you to discover Galicia and its origins through a creative gastronomic offering that has been awarded two Michelin stars and a Michelin green star.

Ability to process your memory and your memories, the perception of what surrounds you and the talent to establish relationships between different experiences, influences and situations. That and the process of your emotions and feelings will make your cuisine unique and non-transferrable.

An inspiration that dwells in the deep knowledge of Galicia and in that surrealism-like thinking which is so characteristic of our collective imagination. Chef Pepe Vieira has traveled to the tradition to develop an own gastronomy named “The Farthest Cuisine of the World”, which rescues recipes and condiments almost forgotten with a vocation for cultural transmission. This trip to the tradition involves extensive research work. Pepe Vieira, joined by anthropologist Rafael Quintía, has visited Galicia in search of the origins of its gastronomy. This leads to a unusual gastronomic proposal: unique experiences which allows you to go deep to the origins and discover all that has been shaped by the Galician people throughout its millenary history. Snacks of the past to delight the palate with exclusive flavours.
