Ever since I was young, I''ve always had a strong passion for food and cooking. Growing up in Venezuela, I spent a lot of time in the kitchen learning to cook from the best teachers for me, personally – my grandmother and mother. With roots tracing back to both Lebanon and Spain, their cooking was heavily influenced by various European and Mediterranean cuisines. And, I was taught to cook using only the freshest of ingredients enhancing the flavors of any dish. My passion for food and cooking continues today, as I further develop my techniques, discover new ingredients and learn new styles. Specifically, I have experience in Mediterranean, Italian, Spanish, Asian, and Latin cuisines.
As a Miami resident for the past eight years, I have had the privilege to train in some of Miami's top restaurants. And, I am always striving to learn more and polish my culinary skills. Through all of my experiences, I have developed a strong interest in preparing fresh, simple, healthy meals. As more people want to know how to eat healthier, I recently became certified as a Nutrition Counselor to gain an understanding on how various foods affect our bodies.
I am now combining both my culinary and nutrition skills to prepare healthy meals for you as a Personal Chef. I enjoy cooking for others and working closely with my clients to ensure food is prepared with their individuals tastes in mind.
