FIVE FACTS ABOUT LAB by Sergi Arola
The idea of LAB by Sergi Arola was a natural progression, after 7 years of the Chef’s presence at Penha Longa Resort, with the successful Arola Restaurant and his worldwide experience.
The restaurant is inspired by the fusion of fresh ingredients, highly-innovative and emotional gastronomy, where each single component is refined and oiled to provide a unique and memorable culinary experience.
Sergi Arola started his career inspired by the knowledge of the renowned Chef - Ferrán Adriá - who won the title of best chef in the world with his restaurant "el Buli", for five consecutive years. Guided by his mentor, our Chef also learned from Pierre Gagnaire and was influenced by references as Raymond Blanc and Jacques Maximin. Like other professionals, Sergi’s passion for food was fostered during his childhood, at the age of twelve, when he discovers his aspiration, cooking along with his grandfather.
