Miguel Maestre is a Spanish-born chef who has made Australia his home. Originally from Murcia in the south of Spain, Miguel fell in love with food from a young age. His passion for both food and life is infectious, and he has developed a talent for incorporating Spanish ingredients and cooking styles into his Australian menus. At 27, Miguel became head chef of Number One, Tony Bilson's bistro, working alongside Australia's leading French Chef Manu Feildel. Miguel went on to open the successful Spanish restaurant El Toro Loco at Manly Beach.
In 2012, Miguel began co-hosting The Living Room on Network 10, alongside Amanda Keller, Dr Chris Brown and Barry DuBois. The Living Room has gone on to win three Logie awards. Other television credits include Boys Weekend (airing in more than 100 countries worldwide), Miguel's Tropical Kitchens where he charms his way through the tropics of North Queensland, cooking with exotic ingredients in breathtaking locations, and Miguel's Feasts and Weekend Feasts, both airing on Network Ten. Miguel is the owner of Maestre Family Food, one of Australia's largest Spanish food importers, and lives in Sydney with his wife and two children.
