Gorka Barredo was born and lives in Vitoria, although she has spent part of her life in Palencia. With the economic crisis he had to reinvent himself. He began to research, train, read and watch cooking shows and thus discovered that this was his true passion. In 2014, and almost by chance, he opened his YouTube channel, ¡Que viva la cocina !, his English counterpart (Food & Cooking), the blog (CocinaCaseraYFacil.net) and his Facebook page. Visits and followers soon began to rise, and today many learn to cook with Gorka every week.
