Introducing Miguel Maestre

A little of Miguel’s background

Miguel is a talented Spaniard who has worked in many great kitchens around the world, and has since made Sydney his home. He’s probably best known from his co-hosting role on Channel Ten’s The Living Room, where his infectious love of both food and life spread like wildfire.

He has worked in some of Sydney’s most elite kitchens including Bather’s Pavilion and Bel Mondo. He also worked as Head Chef of Tony Bilson’s Number One Wine Bar in Circular Quay. At 29, he was Chef for the prestigious Emirates Melbourne Cup, building a strong reputation in the cooking scene.

Miguel has been awarded by His Majesty The King of Spain the highest award a citizen can receive – “The Order of Civil Merits”, for his extraordinary service to the nation for the benefit of Spain in the Australian media.

He has a special knack of twisting Spanish style cooking into Australian menus, and his popularity continues to grow with foodies and non-foodies alike.

We admire Miguel’s passion, and his enthusiasm for life is a perfect match for our children. He makes everything seem fun – and we know our children will love learning more about healthy eating from Miguel.

“I’m very excited to be working with the Paisley Park team to empower pre-school children, their parents and carers with the inspiration, information and professional learning to make positive food choices from an early age, whilst having fun along the way.”  – Miguel Maestre
