The accolade is the latest recognition of Rubén Cabrera’s impressive culinary career; as well as being the representative chef for the Canary Islands in last month’s Madridfusión Gastronomy Summit, Rubén was awarded ‘Best Chef’ at Spain’s National Gastronomy Contest for the second year in a row in 2016. He was also given the first prize in the International Creative Cuisine Competition “Gamba Roja de Dénia” in 2015.
Rubén Cabrera has been the Head Chef at La Cúpula since 2007. This gourmet restaurant, located on the fourth floor of Hotel Jardines de Nivaria, serves fusion food which mixes French and local Canarian cuisines, carefully prepared by the award-wining Chef and his team. The eatery, which re-opened late 2016 after a full refurbishment, boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views over the Atlantic Ocean, making it an ideal spot for visitors to celebrate a special occasion while on their sunny holiday.
Launched in 2010, the ¡Qué Bueno! Canarias Heineken awards recognise the best chefs, cuisines and restaurants in the Canary Islands with ten different award categories – including Best Chef.
