About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel around the world, share my culture, learn other's. Cook and discover new food!

ABOUT ME

The past 5 years had been quite a crazy time for me, moving between Mexico-Paris-Norway-Mediterranean, and finally back in Mexico.
I'm a Chef, therefore i love learning about new recipes, cooking and having a great time. I have lived in Cuernavaca and Mexico City, Mexico; Paris, France and Stavanger, Norway. I consider myself as a mixture of these 3 cultures.

PHILOSOPHY

Como me respondas, yo te respondo.
