Southern flavours Miguel Laffan
Bringing flavours of the East to the Alentejo, chef Miguel Laffan shares the honour of his Michelin star with the whole region.
MIGUEL LAFFAN has been executive chef at the L’AND restaurant, at the L’AND Vineyards Resort in Montemor-o-Novo, Alentejo, since 2011. L’AND’s concept seeks to affirm the new Portuguese gastronomic culture, reflecting both the history and the culture of the Iberian Peninsula, as well as integrating ingredients from the East. Laffan is thus the perfect choice, since his own culinary style is flavoured with Luso-Asian and Middle Eastern inspiration and fresh ingredients. He has a proactive culinary approach and believes that perfection is achieved through detailed research and sheer determination.
