Benigno Couso Prado, received his training at the School of Hospitality in Lugo. In Lugar de Pascuais, and by the hand of Diego Lopez, Beni learned the most traditional and homely made Galician cuisine.
Determined to strengthen his professional learning, he went to Barcelona to study a master's degree in Creative Cuisine. He combined studies with work in Ribelino's, a restaurant by then very fashionable fusing drinks with haute cuisine.
At that time, and being son of innkeepers, he clearly wanted to open his own business. He finally saw this dream come true in February 2014, inaugurating Taberna Patouro in Vigo. A different place, where you can find a small vegetable "market " in the dining room and a trough of bread, in addition to its open kitchen in sight of the customer, without gimmicks.
