Exciting new offering La Bistroteca joins Baltic Market

La Bistroteca has joined the kitchens at Baltic Market.

La Bistroteca was created by Liverpool talented female chef Livia Alarcon.

Having lead some of the most iconic kitchens within the city and beyond, Livia, 26, became head chef of Maray at just 21 where she was featured and awarded for herself and her team’s cooking in the Good Food Guide 2017 and 2018, as well as going on to be part of the BBC’s Chefs’ Brigade, travelling across six countries with Michelin Star chef Jason Atherton.

Livia lasted for the whole series and was then offered a job at Atherton’s Pollen Street Social in London, but she turned it down to return to Liverpool where she then became Head Chef at Queens where she cooked for Jay Rayner who reviewed the restaurant.

Since then, Livia has cooked all food served on TV show Boiling Point, 

Now, Livia is launching her first solo project at Baltic Market, with an impressive menu of European bistro-inspired dishes.

She said: “This concept is based on various bistros around Europe. As an avid traveller and keen food enthusiast and chef, I have been fortunate enough to spend most of my childhood experiencing different parts of the world and I believe this has really shaped my direction with food and my own cooking.

“European bistro food speaks to me because of its connection, familiarity and very nonchalant attitude towards eating; it’s almost a ritual in most European families to dine out and have the whole family around the table. This is what we envision for our guests at La Bistroteca – great familiar and comforting food that brings people together. Cooking is a labour of love for me and quality and flavour is paramount and to achieve this; you must work with the best products. This will allow us to create a special experience for our guests that will see them coming back for more.

“The Baltic Market is the perfect location for myself and La Bistroteca . I’ve always cooked for someone at the restaurants I’ve worked for and now it’s my time to expand and share my dishes with a completely different crowd. The Baltic Market attracts a new wave of guests of all ages, from the city, as well as further afield, and I’m really excited to get in the kitchen.”

Oliver Press, co-founder of Baltic Market, said: “When we started Baltic Market almost six years ago, our intention was for it to be a space and incubator for start-ups, new concepts and up and coming chefs. La Bistroteca by Liv is all of those things. Not only that, but Liv is also one of the best chefs in the city and beyond, so it’s very exciting that she’ll be cooking and sharing her dishes at Baltic Market.”
