Born and raised in the Andes mountains of Venezuela to a Peruvian father and a Colombian mother, José Luis Chavez, the co-founder and co-owner of Mission Ceviche, has culinary experience that spans three continents. José embarked on his culinary journey when he made the life-changing decision to move to Peru to study what he loved – cooking. Since he is of Peruvian heritage, he realized that moving to Peru would be the best way to perfect his cooking talents while getting in touch with his family’s roots.
Throughout his career, José Luis has traveled to France to open and coordinate two restaurants during the Cannes Film Festival. He served as executive chef at a Peruvian-Egyptian fusion restaurant in Lima, catered high-profile fundraising events, and has worked with renowned Peruvian chefs. José’s talent and creations captured the attention of Brice Mastroluca, and together they opened Mission Ceviche in July 2015.
Their dedication to use local and fresh ingredients and partnering with the local artistic community gave the restaurant a presence on social media. He was also featured in the newspaper “El Diario” and has caught the attention of many restaurateurs. Most recently, José Luis Chavez has been noted for rallying chefs and cooks from around the globe for a movement to unite and raise funds for the people in Peru that were affected by the downpours and flooding this past March. Over 50 restaurants participated in this movement, “Cocineros Unidos Por El Peru.”
