Born in Linares, he fell in love with the cuisine thanks to his aunt Luisa, a self-serving seamstress. He carried out his studies in Cordoba and at 19 years old, he got first-hand experience of gastronomy in Tragabuches (*), Ronda. He kept training and cooking for other great restaurants at the time and travelled to get to know other gastronomies of the world. In 2015, Álvaro launched the Argos Restaurant, where he won his first Michelin star in only two years. In 2018, he is proclaimed champion of the “Cocinero del Año” contest, the best chef of the year on a national level. The very same year, he is also awarded as the Best Chef in Mallorca. In 2019, he launched his most personal project, Voro, winning a Michelin star in only 7 months after its opening. Álvaro creates a free-spirited cuisine, committed to his roots and memory, taking inspiration from the environment, where the Mediterranean has a presence in every step.

At 26 years old, this Basque decided to go to Madrid to complete his studies and start working in La Posada del León de Oro, where he learned a different kind of hospitality than the one he had experienced until now, and where gastronomy and great service play a very important role. It is at this point where his interest in this field grew rapidly, which led him to put aside his studies, in order to completely devote himself to the hospitality industry. Two years later, he became a professional in the Madrid Chamber of Commerce, where he studied Restaurant Management and Sumillery. His training began at this point, as he developed as a professional in various flagship restaurants such as Club Allard (**) in Madrid, where he briefly worked with Diego, who later offered him the Sommelier position at Voro, along with Álvaro Salazar and his team.
