Chef Bueno (Rodrigo Bueno) | Villas del Mar
Chef Rodrigo Bueno is originally from mainland Mexico but Southern Californian at heart. His cooking experience began when he was eight years old and worked as a cook in a burger restaurant. When he was 16 years old, he took Japanese cooking classes and learned how to make sushi. A year later, he went to work in a Japanese restaurant where I discovered my true vocation: “Chef.”
Chef Bueno moved to the City of Puebla to study Culinary Arts at the Culinary Institute of Mexico. From there, he returned to Mexico City and worked for five years as the executive chef at Mediterranean restaurants. During these years, he also taught cooking at the Universidad Iberoamericana.
Traveling through Europe, Asia, Africa and the Caribbean helped him discover and understand the flavors of different cultures. In 2006, he arrived in Baja California Sur and worked for five years as Sous Chef at the One & Only. From there, he worked in the Hotel Rancho Pescadero as Executive Chef for three and a half years.
During the nine years he has been in Baja California Sur, he has learned a lot about local gastronomy and has valued what this land can give us. He is passionate about supporting the local producers and highlights the best of our land in the kitchen. He cooks with love and is proud of this land!
He feels it is time for a big change for those who want to offer and taste the real flavors of Baja California Sur and Mexico. Today, many Mexican and international chefs are trying to use more ingredients from the entire Mexican Republic. He is committed to educating visitors about the richness of his cuisine. He believes in using what México has to offer and cook according to today’s culinary trend. That is, of course, to eat healthy, organic, local and Mexican.
Chef Bueno currently works at Club 96 and Villas del Mar managing meals that feature an organic and healthy rural concept. He also prepare dinners at Luna a Mexican restaurant and Asian style cuisine at Tashi. On top of that, he offers catering service and the Villas Culinary experiences.
