Head Chef: Luis Galego Pião, Portugal

Luis is from Lisbon Portugal. He started his professional career as a cook in 1994 in the 5 star Hotel Penha Longa in Sintra. After that he worked in several typical Portuguese restaurants such as “O Baptista”, “Garfo” and in a steakhouse “Portugalia”. His knowledge was gained from experienced Portuguese Chefs. What gives him the great know-how of cooking was the period of 6 years when he worked in a publisher for Impala where he was a food stylist for 4 gastronomic magazines.

In the year of 2010 he decided to start working in offshore companies; first in car carrier vessels, then in supply ships and finally on ferry boats. His passion for exploring brought him to HANSE EXPLORER. Working on our Team is actually the first experience that Luis is having on expedition yachts. In his leisure time he enjoys reading, watching movies, traveling, as well as sports in general, especially football.
