ANDREw & BRENNAN
Andrew and Brennan moved to Alhaurin El Grande in late January 2018. Award winning restaurateurs, the 'boys' as they are affectionately known decided that after 15 years as chef and manager that it was time for a new adventure. Having searched the world for their new home, Calle Piedras 44 chose them.
Andrew was a professional gymnast, who then went on to work as a manager for a renowned holiday company in 12 different Spanish speaking countries before returning to his hometown of Swansea, where he was a manager for First Great Western Railways.
Brennan hails originally from Zimbabwe. He was an award winning theatre director, designer and actor before he changed course and joined the restaurant and hotel trade, working for the likes of Alain Ducasse and Ian Schraeger.
By chance, 'the boys' met in early 2005 and exactly six months later opened their first restaurant, Mosaic, in the market town of Carmarthen in West Wales.
Through many incarnations, adaptations and the roller coaster of life, their mutual love for hospitality, design, culture and adventure has led them to their new creation, Casa 44.
