Orco – Sarwar Hossain

Sarwar Hossain (Orco to us), 30 years old, is above all an unfailing smile and a good mood under all circumstances!


Originally from Chandpur, Bangladesh, Orco first settled in London in 2010 where he attended university and lived for six years. Upon graduation he joined his wife in Paris and after a few weeks bouncing between a sandwich shop and a pizzeria, Orco joined the Quixotic Projects family as part of the Candelaria team, where he has remained ever since.

Orco learned his first cooking skills in Bangladesh, studying the basics of Asian food. In London, he worked in restaurants while studying at university, furthering his knowledge while gaining a European perspective.
Working alongside Chef Carlos, Orco has found a place to put his skills to work as an integral part of the Candelaria kitchen team.

A dream for the future ? : opening his own venue.

A favourite place ? : Le Sacré-Coeur, Montmartre, Paris.

Favourite restaurant : Candelaria, of course !
