I was born in Los Angeles CA, but grew up in Riverside, I am half puerto rican and come from a big hispanic family. I joined the Navy at 19 and lived in Japan for 3 years and traveled all over the world and have experienced the most amazing things, especially the food!
I have always loved food and cooking, I learned from the best my grandmother and my mom.
My favorite things to cook
From my time in Japan, Thialand, Phillipines, Korea, Spain and Puerto Rico, I always paid attention to the local Cuisine. So many technics I picked up it was amazing, I was in the countries where these foods were prepared 100 percent authentic, I couldn't ask for better than that!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Alot of the cooking I do is from my grandmother and mom, very traditional puerto rican dishes. One of my favorites was always pan fried Plantanos with a garlic herb mash and lightly breaded pan fried Scallops.
My cooking triumphs
I can a make a very "mean" homemade salsa!
