Andrés Vega has a Diploma in Culinary Arts from the Interamerican University.
His first steps in the world of gastronomy were at the Hotel Xandari in Puerto Viejo, Limón, as Head Chef.
Upon returning to San José, he assumed the position of Shift Supervisor at the Quality Inn Hotel. He continued his professional career at the Cariblue Hotel assuming the position of Head Chef.
For a while he decided to dedicate to other of his passions, the teaching and training of young cooking professionals, assuming the position of Professional Cooking Career Instructor at the O'Sullivan Culinary Institute in San José.
He joined the team of Tintos & Blancos in 2012 assuming the position of Sous Chef and was promoted to Executive Chef in 2014 until January 2018.
The development company Las 4 A offered him the opportunity to develop a gastronomic center in Atenas (Alajuela) as Culinary Director. It was a professional challenge that we understood as an opportunity for professional growth.
Once that stage was over, he assumed the position of Executive Chef at the Vino Mundo restaurant in Brasil de Mora until the end of August 2019.
In September 2019, he joined the Tintos & Blancos team again, assuming the position of Executive Chef, which makes us very happy and we hope he will accompany us for a long time and allow us to enjoy his creativity.
