Tuck-into tapas

About me – my journey from Spain, where I worked as a journalist to Cambridge, in the UK and my Spanish food business.

My name is Estefania Led Ramos, I come from Aragon, Spain and moved to England in 2011, after many years working as a journalist, I decided it was time to follow a life-long passion, something that I really enjoy – cooking and making other people happy with my food.

My interest in food and my fascination with recipes, and recipe development led to me back to school, to further study cookery. I completed several courses in Spain and London. During my studies I developed my skills and learnt a lot more about the products, sourcing great ingredients to make fantastic food. What had started as a hobby, has grown and grown, developing into what you see today, Que Rico Tapas – Cambridgeshire’s premiere Spanish Catering Company.

I cook traditional Spanish food, following many classic recipes. I like simple, honest food – it’s authentic… proud of its heritage and production. I’m passionate about the products and producers I work with, carefully selecting and refining the freshest ingredients, locally sourced whenever possible, and often using authentic Spanish products for my dishes.

I cook everything from scratch bringing a feast of traditional aromas, colours and flavours to your table, evoking happy memories of holidays in Spain. And for those who are more adventurous, you will discover new flavours and ingredients the likes of which you may not have experienced before. This is all part of the “gastronomic experience” that I’m proud to continue and share through my food. I want to share my knowledge of Spanish food and flavour with everyone.

One of my favourite activities is cooking at private events, homes, family gatherings or small groups, as I love meeting, talking and discussing Spanish food with my customers.

All of my events include stories about the ingredients, the dishes and the history and culture behind the tapas. I’ll often explore the origins of recipes, share anecdotes about the names and generally have fun with the food, the flavour and the people I’m cooking for.

But it’s not just about the food, it’s about sharing a special moment, around a table with friends and family. I believe that food, and sharing of that food with others creates a special atmosphere where people enjoy, learn and relax…it’s a unique moment and something I’d like to share with you.
