Jorge Sancho is the new Chef of AP Cabanas Beach & Nature

Jorge Sancho is the new Chef de Cuisine of the most recent hotel of the AP Hotels & Resorts group, owned by MADRE TURISMO: AP Cabanas Beach & Nature, in Cabanas de Tavira.
Jorge Sancho joined the Algarve Hotel & Tourism School in 1997, where he had the opportunity to train at the Quinta do Lago hotel and at the Camané restaurant. After completing his training, he started working at the Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa and in 2003 he ventured out on a cruise boat experience with Celebrity Cruises. Later, he was part of the opening team at Hotel Vila Sol, where he worked until early 2009, and then started working in his hometown, joining the Pousada do Palácio de Estoi as sous-chef.
Still at the Pousada do Palácio de Estoi, he took on the position of Chef de Cuisine, thus beginning a 12-year journey as chef de cuisine at the Pestana Hotel Group, having also worked at the Pousada de Estoi, the Pestana Viking and the Pestana Vila Sol Hotels.
Currently, the new chef at AP Cabanas Beach & Nature is embracing a “new and ambitious project, as challenges are what make us grow”, as he says, adding that “for the restaurants of this unit, the concept involves a contemporary approach to the Algarve’s gastronomic heritage, highlighting the dishes of our ancestors. Flavours that can be savoured in a relaxed way, in a buffet at the Flor de Sal restaurant, or with an elaborate and refined presentation, in a set menu at the Ria restaurant”.
