Juan Carlos Callejas Marín
Juan Carlos Callejas has been in charge of the kitchen at the Café Nolasco since 2014. He joined the team to direct an art and gastronomy concept. Juan Carlos was a painter before becoming a cook. He began cooking in 2010 in the restaurant My Way in Huesca.
Before this he had only cooked for friends, using them as guinea pigs for his culinary undertakings in his studio in Calatorao. A meeting with the late Darío Barrio changed the course of his life and he now combines two forms of art: painting and cooking, that in his opinion have many aspects in common.
The recipe of Cod confit, borage and cockle bechamel sauce as well as the Chef bio is an extract of the Golden Book of the Aragonese Cuisine first edition, an International Gourmand World Cookbook Award as the best book in Spanish in the “Local Cuisine” category.
