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: Antonio, Ana, Eva, Cipri, Lucia, Nicky
Antonio (front of house) is well known to our visitors as he has spent several summers with us. Antonio is a mine of information about the area, spanish food, and wines, so his knowledge is put to good use helping our many overseas visitors. Other times he has his own bar in the village.
Ana (front of house) – is here for her third year with us, running things out front with Antonio. 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.
Eva (head chef) – for several years Eva has worked at Cantueso as sous chef and this year stepped up to the head chef role. She is very passionate about using fresh local ingredients and that all dishes must be “home” cooked. Nothing is bought in, and she has introduced lots of new dishes to the menu.
Cipriano is a student assisting Eva in the kitchen for the summer. Cipri is studying at the Malaga cookery school and brightens up the kitchen with his colourful dress sense, and is keen to use his training in a practical situation.
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.
Nicky (the boss) say no more!
All the team are Periana locals and work hard to maintain our number one spot in the area. They look forward to meeting you.
