  • Manuel Maria Puga y Parga aka "Picadillo" (Santiago de Compostela 1874 - A Coruña, September 30, 1918), was a culinary writer and gastronome who popularized and updated traditional Galician cooking methods. He is a legendary figure among Spanish chefs and gourmands. He was also a lawyer and a politician. He had a huge sense of humour and he had no problem using it even about himself. For his political Biography, he wrote: "In 1882 I was an eight years old man weighting about 75 Kg". His excessive weight (reportedly reached 275 kg) made him well known. According to writer Luis Anton de Olmert, a circus visited A Coruña showing a German man as the fattest one in the world, but people got disappointed saying: "Manolo Puga is fatter and you can see him down the street ".
