Chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, and health and wellness expert Seamus Mullen began his love of cooking as a child.

Seamus studied in Burgos, Spain, thus beginning his love of the country's vibrant food and culture. When he was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2007 he was forced to rethink his relationship with food and he changed his cooking and lifestyle becoming a wellness expert and author of two books; Hero Food and Real Food Heals. In 2013 he opened his second NY restaurant, El Colmado, in Gotham West Market.
