José Pizarro is an incredible Spanish chef. He is often described as the godfather of Spanish cooking in the UK. José grew up on a farm in central-western Spain surrounded by many different flavours. When it was time to choose a career, it was a choice between dentistry and cooking, and as you can guess he went for cooking. José now lives in London and owns 4 restaurants: José Pizarro, José, Pizzaro and The Swan Inn. All of them serve up the freshest tapas and authentic Spanish dishes

José believes that tapas and Spanish cooking should be easy - it's all in the prep! When he came to the MOB studio he made a classic dish from his cookbook ‘Andalusia’: Sopa Bullabesa de Almería. The best of the bullabesa. This is such a simple dish, with very few quality ingredients which produce an incredible flavour. Monkfish, prawns and clams all served up in a fragrant soup infused with saffron.

This showstopper is perfect for when you’re willing to splash a little cash to impress your friends. Best enjoyed with wine and a good loaf of ciabatta. Unbelievable.
