Meet The Chefs
Chef Iolanda Bustos
She feels like a daughter of her landscape, having been born in Palafrugell in 1976 and growing up in Palau-Sator. Her culinary journey, guided by her farmer-shepherd father and Andalusian mother, led her to become known as "the flower chef" and embrace a naturalistic cooking style that connects people with nature and its flavors.
