Our Team

Seeing Salvadoran food through the lens of a refined chef, I was able to notice techniques and flavors that were truly special but underrepresented. I realized that Salvadoran food at an elevated level is an untapped market here in the US and it deserves to be shown in a new light and at a time when people are hungry for more food diversity.
