Josep Espuga

Culinary Director

Culinary Director Josep Espuga originated from Catalonia, Spain, with a multi-Michellin star-studded CV featuring Mugaritz, Nahm, and New York’s Degustation. Josep has been in Australia for the past decade, most recently at Pretty Little in Melbourne. Josep brings a wealth of experience working at Hamilton Island, where he managed large teams and multi-venue dining. Josep also launched The Bohemian at South Wharf in Melbourne. 


Josep’s experience at Madrid’s La Broche working with El Bulli alumni Sergi Arola set him on his culinary journey and desire to cook worldwide. His first introduction to Australia was during a Stage at Mugaritz, where he met a young Dan Hunter. 


Josep was drawn to the Peninsula at the end of last year to work at Pt. Leo Estate under Phil and appointed to manage the three-venue Estate overseeing Laura, Pt. Leo Restaurant and the Wine Terrace.
