About me

My love for the cuisine began a lot of time ago, so much, that already I do not even remember. Always I felt a special attraction for the burners, and when I was small, I was in the habit of slipping past in the kitchen to experiment for my account. My mother was becoming mad with me! Ultimately, I managed to make real my dream and today I have the pleasure of sharing it with you.

Iria Castro begins her formation (training) in the cuisine of the Zuberoa (San Sebastian) of the hand of Hilario Arbelaitz followed by that of the Hotel of the Pyrenees (France) with Fermin Arrambide to continue her gait in others as the Restaurant Rocamar in Vigo and the Club 31 or Major End in Madrid.
