Chef Biography

Chef Pablo Massey was mentored as a very young chef by Francis Mallmann, known as the Julia Child of Argentina, back in the 1970’s & 80’s for nine years. He traveled through Canada, Ireland, Spain, and Singapore before landing in Italy and France, working under Great Chef Emile Tabourdie at Le Bristol in Paris, and Emile Yung in Strasbourg at Le Crocodile.

He had just opened Massey in Buenos Aires when Great Chefs filmed him for three dishes in late 1999 and early 2000.  In 2003, Pablo was invited to work under Great Chef Michel Roux at the River Café in London.  In 2010, he returned to Argentina to open La Panadería de Pablo, and now in 2015 is preparing to open his latest restaurant, “Uruguay”, in downtown Buenos Aires.
