Introducing the Executive Chef of The Westin Palace, Madrid: 

Chef
José Luque
Originally from Madrid and passionate about Spanish food, José Luque arrived at the Palace in 2015 assuming responsibility for all of the Hotel's gastronomic references: restaurant, banquets, bar and room service.

Luque has a vast experience of over 20 years in the industry, having worked for both national and international companies. During this time, he has done tremendous work while traveling the world representing Spanish cuisine at the highest level and collaborating with chefs from other countries.

To José Luque, cooking is his profession as well as his passion. In his free time, he enjoys visiting restaurants around Spain. This became clear for him as a little boy, when he would climb a chair and help is mother make croquetas, a traditional food. His restlessness and dynamism drove him to apply to several gastronomic competitions from a young age.
