Meet The Gran Luchito Team

We thought it’d be nice to introduce the team here at Gran Luchito HQ (Casa Luchito). We are a small dynamic team of foodies full of energy and a passion for delicious authentic Mexican food.

El Capitan

Fergus began Gran Luchito after a holiday to the South of Mexico where he first came across the wonderful flavours of authentic Mexican food. Self-confessed foodie and lover of all things spicy,  there aren’t many things this man won’t add chilli too.

Favourite Gran Luchito Recipe:
“I spread the mayo on thick sourdough toast then top it with a smashed avocado and a poached egg.
Brunch sorted”

El Chapo

Freddie joined Gran Luchito in 2017. He is passionate about food and enjoys cooking Gran Luchito inspired Mexican food for his friends. He is also a keen sportsman.

Favourite Gran Luchito Recipe:

“Marinating salmon steaks in the honey mixed with sesame oil and soy sauce is top of my list”

La Marketer

A former Taco Bell marketer and transplant from California whose passion for Mexican food knows no bounds. Cooking for her family, especially Mexican food, is one of her greatest passions.

Favourite Gran Luchito Recipe:
“My favourite recipe is my epic taco salad! I start with a base of our tortilla chips, layer on beans and rice, top with beef mince seasoned with our Garlic and Guajillo Taco Mix, lightly dress with a vinaigrette made with my secret ingredient – a dollop of Chipotle Chilli Ketchup. Then I top with Chipotle Salsa, cheese, avocado and sour cream.”

El Dinero

The man with the plan. Rishabh is the ‘money’ and without his superhuman analytical skills or razor-sharp attention to detail, Gran Luchito would come to a grinding halt.
When he’s not at casa Luchito he enjoys swimming, watching movies and travelling.

Favourite Gran Luchito Recipe:
“I combine the smoked chilli paste with classic Southeast Asian flavours to create Zesty Lime Prawns”

La Mensajera

Jes is our social media guru. Originally from New Zealand, she now resides in London and loves nothing more than exploring the world’s cultures through food. She makes a mean guacamole and when she’s not hustling, her happy place is by a beautiful beach with a beer in hand.

Favourite Gran Luchito Recipe:
“I’m an absolute sucker for avocado anything, so my go-to is a classic poached egg and avo on toast, taken to the next level with our Chipotle Chilli Mayo.”
