Jorge Olarte, Chef de Cuisine

Jorge Olarte grew up in South Florida and started his first cooking job in high school at a neighborhood bagel shop. After working a few odd jobs, he ended up in the construction field for about 8 years before going back to school and working in kitchens professionally. After graduation, he moved to New York City. After about 10 years in the city, half of which has been spent with the Momofuku team, Jorge is very excited to help lead the team at Má Pêche.
