In the interview with The Worlds 50 Best Restaurants shared on social media, the chef speaks about what an honor receiving the award was and how with it he is representing his country of Mexico. The technique focused chef shares how he has honed his craftsmanship throughout the years with the "less is more" approach pushing him to exact his skills and really refine the flavor profile of his delicious treats.
Chef Luis also shares how he believes that chocolate is great medium to work with in the kitchen. "The thing with chocolate is that you can compare it to either coffee or wine. Each region has its own flavours," shares Luis. He continues "Each type of cacao bean has its own character, its own aroma. So we have so many options, it's just unbelievable how many things you can get out of just one small bean."
