Zé Paulo Rocha
O Velho Eurico
At the age of 24, José Paulo Rocha can say that he is living his childhood dream. Ever since he was a little boy, he wanted to be a pastry chef and so he did: he took the Cooking and Pastry course at the Professional School of Hospitality and Tourism in Lisbon and wore his lab coat. However, Zé Paulo did not stop at pastries. Rather, he explored all areas of cuisine at O Velho Eurico, a well-known Lisbon restaurant that the chef reopened in August 2019. At O Velho Eurico, Zé Paulo practices a “kind of 2.0 tradition, a mixture of traditional flavours achieved through the best products and an undeniable technique". Zé Paulo is also one of the founders of the collective New Kids on The Block.
