The chef

Miguel Ángel Expósito and sustainable cuisine

Chef Miguel Ángel Expósito combines experience and his culinary restlessnes in the search for new experiences in La Mancha's cuisine.

A champion of local produce, reared with the same care with which he cooks it in the kitchen, he suggests to awaken our senses with a proposal based on passion, modernity and the traditional genre of La Mancha recipes.

Born in Seville and, for some years now, a resident of La Mancha, Miguel Ángel Expósito got his training in the kitchens of Mugaritz, Martín Berasategui and Can Jubany before joining Javier Aranda at La Cabra, gaytán and, eventually, La Caminera as Head Chef from 2019.

An active member of Eurotoques, his passion for local cuisine has led him to represent our cuisine at events such as Raíz Culinaria and Sabores del Quijote.
