travel to mexico
After 10 years working in marketing in higher education, I started the path of my first passion: food. After training at the culinary school Alain Ducasse and Lenotre, I started looking for my own kitchen. Being Indian, I knew how to use spices and combine them to create surprising combinations, but my eureka moment happened after a year-long break due to a serious illness.
After traveling to more than 40 countries, I take inspiration from every place I go.
Supermarkets and local farmers markets are my inspirational museums. I am proud to be thorough and attentive. And the most important part for me is to adopt a zero waste attitude for my food.
I like cooking vegetarian dishes and trying to use the whole vegetable at its maximum capacity, for example: skins for fries or seeds for croquettes.
I left my homeland, Mexico, 15 years ago to continue my marketing studies in France, a country that I love for its culture and gastronomy.
A passion that goes back to childhood; I took my first steps of cooking with my nanny, then it is my grandmother who passed on to me her recipes, her very special know-how and her "sazón" (taste).
As a French gastronomy lover, when cooking I remember my Mexican roots and its cusine, classified by UNESCO as an intangible heritage but often unrecognized or misinterpreted.
My cooking is a reflection of my career: authentic using my family dishes that I reinterpret, refine and renew in order to bring them to the table in France.
Simple ingredients and flavors that I have found from many places that I want to share with a Parisian public fond of new discoveries.
It was so well received (almost 40% of the cutlery reserved) we will do mystery menus for a second time but it will be even more mysterious because we will change the mystery menu every week!
Are you part of our community of gastronomically curious?
Every month For the Love of Food surprises you with 3 new chefs and three new menus.
This month we have decided to keep one of the menus secret until the last moment. It isn't guarnteed to be vegetarian so make sure to choose the Atlas Mountains menu if you are vegetarian.
So have we got you even more curious? Then take your chances and try our mystery menu.
