Alejandro Calvo has been appointed head chef at Tast in Manchester, the restaurant backed by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

Calvo has more than seven years’ experience working alongside Tast’s executive chef Paco Perez, including at his two-Michelin-starred Enoteca restaurant in Barcelona.

“At Tast we have a real opportunity to make a name for ourselves as one of the restaurants that is leading the city in its culinary revolution and I’m glad to be a part of it,” says Calvo.

Tast opened in July 2018​ and serves Catalonian cuisine.

It is a joint restaurant venture between Guardiola, Manchester City club director Txiki Bergiristain, club CEO Ferran Soriano, and the Fazenda restaurant group.

“We’re confident that with Alejandro at the helm we’ll be able to cement ourselves as not only the best Catalonian food in Manchester, but one of the must-try experiences in the city,” says Sandra Martorell, director at Tast.
