10. Peter Sanchez-igle­sias,

chef-owner of Casamia


Fol­low­ing the untimely death of his brother Jon­ray (who was also the chef-owner of Casamia) in 2015, Peter Sanchez-igle­sias’ rise to star­dom has been bit­ter-sweet. While his brother didn’t get to see the trans­for­ma­tion of the fam­ily-run Casamia and the sub­se­quent open­ing of two more restau­rants (in­clud­ing one of this year’s most talked about restau­rants – Paco Tapas), Sanchez-igle­sias has in­tro­duced Bris­tol to some of the world’s finest cui­sine. With all three of his restau­rants perched along Bris­tol’s wa­ter­front, Sanchez-igle­sias and his fam­ily have de­vel­oped a string of restau­rants pre­vi­ously never seen in the West Coun­try. Paco Sanchez-igle­sias, his fa­ther, still works the front of house at Casamia de­spite be­ing well into his 70s. Fo­cus­ing on only sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents, the menu in­cludes dishes like duck breast pre­pared Pek­ingstyle, brushed with honey and topped with fen­nel seeds, cumin and Szechuan pep­per.
