Salad Libre

  • My salad is a gathering of all Spanish cultures in one dish. I lived in Colombia for a few years and traveled to Costa Rica, Venezuela, Panama, etc. where I learned more about their culture through the flavor of their dishes. Right now, I live here in the USA, in NY which is the melting pot of the world, and I continue learning about more cultures and powerful flavors such as from Mexico, Peru, Argentina, etc.
