Alfredo NogueiraNEW MAKER!

New Orleans, LA


Alfredo Nogueira was born in New Orleans. He started cooking as soon as he was old enough to work, first at the original Zea Rotisserie Grill and then later at restaurants like RioMar and Vega Tapas Cafe. Playing guitar, however, also was his passion. Hurricane Katrina sent Nogueira to Chicago, where he became more serious about cooking. Eventually he became the executive chef at a bar called Analogue, where he made classic Louisiana food. Soon after, Nogueira returned to New Orleans. He was hired as the executive chef at Cafe Henri, where he created a new menu that reflects his many influences. Chef Nogueira is currently at NOLA's Cane & Table.
