Our Chef - Jaume DrudisJaume's entry into the world of cooking started early, born into a family of chefs, and becoming the third generation of his Lleida-based family to become a chef. His main teacher and mentor was his father, from whom he learnt the value of classical cuisine. In 1990 Jaume received the Angel Award from the Federation Moncusí Lleida Catering for best young chef , allowing him to visit Bordeaux to extend his training. Jaume subsequently returned to Spain, working at recognised restaurants such as Neichel, Freixa and Chez Vous,before moving to Germany in 1996 to join the R & D Center of Excellence of Unilever.
