Ignacio Mattos

Ignacio Mattos grew up in Uruguay, worked with Francis Mallmann, built his skills at Zuni Café and Chez Panisse, and was the chef at Il Buco in New York for five years before striking out on his own. In addition to Estela, he and his partner Thomas Carter own Café Altro Paradiso, Flora Bar and Flora Coffee at the Met Breuer, all in New York City. His new book is "Estela."

Developing Flavor Through the Craft of Cooking
Ignacio Mattos' restaurant Estela was named to the "Top 50 Best Restaurants in the World" list in 2016, and his long-awaited cookbook of the same name is here with all of the chef-inspired magic you hoped for. Ignacio will demonstrate how to elevate simple ingredients, compose a plate in layers, and create bright, playful, and delicious food. Don't miss this chance to learn from one of today's most influential chefs and tastemakers.
