We would like to introduce Wyndham Trenython Manor’s new Head Chef, Mauricio Zambrano, or Mauri, as he prefers.
Mauri was born in Ecuador, South America. His family, especially on his mother’s side, are big foodies and owners of restaurants and bakeries in their homeland. At an early age, Mauri started helping in the family business and very quickly discovered a passion for cooking.
Mauri is an enthusiastic and motivated Chef who is passionate about local food. He understands that relationships with local suppliers are important and works closely with the local butchers, fishermen and farmers to provide the best quality ingredients to use here at Wyndham Trenython Manor. With experience in food research, new products, different techniques, use of flavours and spices, along with food preparation and presentation, there isn’t much that Mauri can’t turn his hand to.
To get to know Mauri a little better, we asked him a few questions about his career.
