Vasco Coelho Santos
During the final year of his business management degree, Vasco Coelho Santos realised he loved cooking more than he did numbers. He left Porto for Lisbon where he worked in important kitchens. But it was time in Spanish powerhouses El Bulli, Mugaritz and Arzak that left the biggest impression on him. He returned to Porto to explore local flavours and opened two restaurants, one of which is Euskalduna Studio which earned a Michelin star in 2022.
