Rosa Virginia

Virginia – director and administrator at Cook and Taste Tenerife – has Canarian and Italian origins and grew up in a family where both her parents were professional cooks. A tad petite in stature, Virginia has a gigantic heart and a great organizational capacity. All of these qualities, coupled with her formation in human resources, make her the ideal person to command our great family. With a heart of gold, she is passionate about helping others through social and humanitarian work in different organizations and the church. Virginia is, in other words, the mother of this great family, the person who always keeps us motivated with her contagious strength and optimism, and keeps everything in in order.
