At Cantueso we are very proud of our team who work so hard in serving the public both in the restaurant and cottages and we would like to introduce them to you.
L to R: Vanesa, Ana, Nicky, Carmen, Lucía, Sheila
Vanesa (front of house) – is new this year and has a gift for mixing our summer special cocktails and no doubt her maths degree helps with our not too friendly till!
Ana (front of house manager) – is here for her second year with us, in charge of front of house. Her winning smile and efficiency makes her very popular with guests. In real life she is a music graduate waiting for a teaching job in schools.
Nicky (the boss) – say no more.
Carmen (head chef) – first joined us in 2007 and has been responsible for many popular dishes which have origins in all regions of Spain. She is particularly proud of the fact that everything is home-made and wherever possible using local produce.
Lucía (head of housekeeping) – was already here when we took over in 2007. She has been invaluable during our many refurbishments, and makes sure that all ten cottages and the apartment are always properly prepared for guests.
Sheila (sous chef) – joined us this year after graduating from the catering college in Malaga. She has already proved to be a great asset in the kitchen, always smiling, industrious and never wilts under pressure.
They are all Periana locals and look amazingly happy considering they had just finished a busy service with over forty diners!
A PS: we do have one male member of the team, José our gardener, who was not present when the photo was taken. He is featured in a separate post regarding our plants and gardens.
