His interest in cooking has always been present in his life. Born in Venezuela, with European roots, since his childhood Walter has continuously experimented with a variety of products and flavors. His passion for sushi led him to live in Japan for more than a year. There he discovered its culture and the richness of its gastronomy. He worked at Nobu Tokyo, where day after day he trained following the most traditional Japanese philosophy: a combination of passion, dedication and attention to the smallest detail. He perfected his knowledge and technique and at the end of his stay he participated in the World Sushi Cup 2014, becoming a finalist.
His dedication and experience expanded during the last few years. Since 2008 he has been working in some of the best restaurants around the world.
In 2017 he taught courses for professionals at the Basque Culinary Center and then performed several consulting services in Marrakech, New York, Barcelona and Vienna until opening, in 2021, his own sushi bar Omakase, the first one in Ibiza, where he offers a unique experience, paying tribute, with his dishes, to the most authentic Japanese gastronomy.
