Miguel Maestre The Living Room



Miguel Maestre is a Spanish born chef who has made Sydney his home and powered his way up the ranks. Miguel is back for season three, bringing all the passion of the food world to The Living Room.

Miguel Maestre has an unreserved enthusiasm for food and for life and puts together food that is inspiring, beautifully crafted and tasty.

Australia lucked out when this Spanish native decided to move to Sydney seven years ago after working in some of Europe’s best restaurants. Miguel has impressed the local dining world as well, working in some of Sydney’s premier kitchens including Bather’s Pavilion, Bel Mondo and Cru, before taking up a position at Minus 5 in Circular Quay.

In January 2010, Miguel opened his first restaurant El Toro Loco (The Crazy Bull). He now runs his own business, offering a personal chef experience creating bespoke dining experiences for people wanting to entertain at home.

Miguel Maestre has also released two books: Miguel’s Tapas in 2010 and Miguel’s Spanish Cooking in 2011. He is also a proud Ambassador of Freixenet Wines and Café Del Mar in Sydney.

Miguel’s television credits include co-hosting Boys Weekend, alongside friends Gary Mehigan, Manu Feildel and Adrian Richardson, and Miguel’s Tropical Kitchen on Life Style Food. Miguel has also been a part of the Master Chef Australia family, appearing as a guest chef on the flagship show and also on Junior Master Chef and Ready Steady Cook.
