Winner of the inaugural GastroMonth Circle of Excellence 2017 Innovative, Bold Chef Award, Michelin Star in Washington D.C. Chef Pepe Moncayo is not one to be pigeonholed by geography when it comes to food. Steeped in a rich Catolonian heritage, his cuisine is injected with a worldly culinary sensibility, driven by the finest ingredients of the season.
Having cut his teeth at several Michelin-starred restaurants around the world -including a stint at the now-defunct Santi - Chef Pepe now helms the kitchen at BAM! as Executive Chef, where each dish is an exquisite expression of his life’s experiences, elevated by innovative permutations of flavours and textures.
First introduced to the "Modern Shudo" way when visiting a brewery in Japan during his travels, Chef Pepe was immediately drawn to how sake brings out the "umami" flavours of food, adding a divine dimension to cuisine from around the world. This discovery eventually set the stage for his culinary creations which are paired with exceptional libations at BAM!
Cooking in the language of colours, flavours and textures, Chef Pepe continues to surprise even the most fervent of foodies at BAM!, enthraling their senses to no foreseeable end.
