ABOUT THE CHEF
2 MICHELIN STAR CHEF
OTEQUE, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Most chefs you speak have that aha moment when they realised cooking was going to be their vocation. For some it was cooking with their mother or grandmother or remembering something they had eaten which triggered that spark. Not for Alberto Landgraf, chef of Rio de Janeiro restaurant Oteque.APPLY FOR TICKETS 🎟️
In the early 2000s, then a physics graduate, Alberto Landgraf landed in London to learn English. His accidental move into hospitality came only after he found he needed an income to stay in the city. He worked for both Tom Aikens (!) and Gordon Ramsay (!!) before returning to Brazil in 2006 to open his first restaurant. Epice opened in Sao Paulo in 2008 and quickly won recognition, including a Michelin star.
In February 2018 Alberto relocated to Rio de Janeiro and opened Oteque, focusing on his Japanese heritage, not through ingredients, but through simplicity and precise technique. Soon after opening Oteque was included on Latin America’s 50 Best list. Without forgetting the human relationship between producers, staff and clients, Alberto’s creative style strives for excellence on the plate, strongly supporting fair trade and trying to make the world a nicer place for all involved within the food chain.
