Short Story from our Founder Patricia Gonzalez
"My story begins in the place where I grew up, Guadalajara, Jalisco! During my childhood, I stayed at home and helped my mom make meals for the rest of the family. I never saw this as a chore because I found at a young age that cooking is my passion. Ever since then I've learned new recipes and looked for new ways to make food even better! For decades I continued to grow and develop my love of cooking. Then, I met my husband and moved to Chicago in 2004."
