In 2013, Le Basque was commissioned by Hermes Homme to ideate a showcase of amuse-bouches that would underline the international fashion brand’s attention to detail. An arrangement of lobster tails, foie brulée and cheeses were served at the grand opening, which took place at the Design District’s Moore Building. Another such highlight is the Take Center Stage Gala at the Adrienne Arsht Center in 2008, where the floral theme was integrated by featuring giant paper roses that hovered just above the stage, designed by Le Basque.
Muguerza, the president and creative force behind Le Basque, credits his upbringing in northern Spain for the company’s culinary direction. A balance of tradition and innovation has defined the Basque country as one of the most highly regarded gastronomic cultures in the world. Muguerza’s heritage; his art studies in Florence; his years living in London and Brussels; and his travels around the world are some of the many influences behind his process.
Co-founder and executive vice-president, Ian Perris, has dedicated his life to working in the service industry at the most prestigious level. His perfectly British approach to service and protocol is highly regarded and balanced by creative flair for entertaining. Working with some of the highest members of aristocracy and society including notables such as The Lord Mayor of London and the late Earl Spencer, father to Diana, Princess of Wales; Perris has brought an extraordinary resume and wealth of experience to Le Basque. Jim Mozina, co-founder and COO is the strategic thinker and business-minded counterpart of his fellow co-founders. Thriving in situations that require extreme attention to detail, Mozina has honed his skill in logistics coordination and event management.
