Who Is Chef Hindrigo “Kiko” Lorran?
A native of Londrina, Brazil, Kiko grew up in a small but close-knit family, which helped him develop an intimate familial bond with his loved ones. To this very day, he maintains a solid connection with his close ones and holds his parents responsible for the success he has achieved. In fact, it was they who pushed Kiko and encouraged him to chase his dream after he developed a passion for cooking. Sources say that when he was just a child, he often watched his mother prepare food in the kitchen.
As Kiko grew, he would lend a hand from time to time, and by the time he turned eight, the kitchen was one of his favorite rooms in the house. Once he discovered his passion for cooking and knew it was his only calling, he chased his dream, trained as a professional chef, and began making a name for himself in the culinary industry. Readers would be interested to know that Kiko’s profession took him to different corners of the world, and he has plied his craft in major countries, including Spain, South Africa, and Paris, among others.
Besides, the talented chef has even worked while sailing on the Amazon River and describes his cuisine as rustic yet international. Apart from looking, Kiko has always been a massive language buff and knows multiple languages, including English, Portuguese, and Spanish. Moreover, he published an e-cookbook, The Surfers Cookbook, in 2018 and loves yachting, which eventually led him to become a part of ‘Below Deck Mediterranean’ in 2020. His time on the show got him even more exposure, and he enjoyed his time as the charter yacht chef.
