Paco Morales


Paco, a disciple of Andoni Luis Aduriz, revolutionised the culinary scene in Spain by taking a risk with minimalism, impossible contrasts and great boldness regarding concepts and texture.

He was born in Cordoba in 1981, into the heart of a family dedicated to the restaurant industry (Asador de Nati) in which he was trained. Later, in 1999, he started to move: Diagonal (Zaragoza), Guggenheim Bilbao, Mugaritz, El Bulli and Mugaritz again, where he ended up in the R&D department working closely with Andoni. From 2007 to 2009 he was successful at the Senzone in the hotel Hospes (Madrid) and afterwards, at the restaurant of the hotel Ferrero in the Community of Valencia. In 2012 he opened restaurant Paco Morales at Hotel Ferrero. Despite his youth, he has been receiving a lot of awards for his high culinary techniques and creative dishes. He currently runs Noor (Córdoba), the restaurant where he has transferred the Andalusian culinary heritage to the contemporary avant-garde. It has a Michelin star.
