HOW WE GOT HERE
Argentinian native Martin Louzao, since childhood showed his passion for the kitchen by self-teaching himself with cookbooks. His curiosity led the way onto various countries and cuisines worldwide, which allowed him to create a cosmopolitan culinary style.
At the early age of 18, his academic journey began at the School of Culinary Arts Gato Dumas, Argentina. In order to enrich his knowledge in haute cuisine and complement it with a career in Management and Marketing, he continued studies at the Maussi Sebes Institute and the Ecole Lenotre in Paris with Albert Adrià, among other prominent chefs.
After touring European and Latin American cuisines, the warm and picturesque Puerto Rico brought him back to San Juan, where he and his partner established Cincosentidos Culinary Group, earning countless foodie fans and winning plentiful awards over the years.
