Peter Sanchez-Iglesias is the chef/co-owner of Casamia in Bristol. Along with his brother Jonray, Peter grew up working in his parents’ restaurant and, in 2006, with his family’s support, began the transformation of the former trattoria into something spectacular. Their efforts earned the restaurant a coveted Michelin star in 2009 and 5AA Rosettes were awarded the same year.
Moving the restaurant to The General in Bristol, in January 2016 the team added two new restaurants, Pi Shop and Paco Tapas, to their waterfront home.
Peter was awarded Chef of the Year in the Good Food Guide 2018 in which Casamia was also named number 10 in the UK.
Paco Tapas received a Michelin star in the 2018 Michelin Guide which also marks Casamia’s incredible 10th year listed with a star in the Michelin Guide.
I would certainly say Pub in the Park is up there with one of best things I have ever done, the atmosphere and buzz over those 3 days was just electric and I felt so lucky to be a part of it all. All in all, we served around 4000 dishes over the 3 days, the most popular being the Mackerel Taco which sold out on each session, I couldn’t have asked for a better crowd though as they were all willing to try the other dishes we had to offer. One of my favourite moments had to be that I got to celebrate my birthday which was on the Sunday In such an incredible way, meeting a huge amount of kind and wonderful people as well as watching The Milk who are one of my favourite bands.
Wow - what an incredible, amazing weekend! The vibe was fantastic; the food was stunning, the music outstanding, but above all else, the people of Marlow made the whole event feel very special. It showed off our lovely town to all our visitors and the chefs from all over the country and did us proud.
