João Wengorovius

Consumed with a passion for haute cusine and the stories behind it, João Wengorovius, the former CEO of advertising agency BBDO in Lisbon, travelled the world for three years, interviewing 21 well-known chefs. His book, We, Chefs, is the conversations he had with them and the photographs he took of them. There are, he tells us, no recipes to be found in it -- only "an invitation to expand our minds through food".

João Wengorovius and his wife Maria do Carmo are owners of the Alentejo House in Estremoz, Portugal. To read an interview with him, please visit our Journal section here. To stay at the Alentejo House, please click here
