Ever since I was a little girl, I have been interested in cooking and learning more about the food became a passion. I was born and raised in an oil field in Colombia. So, from an early age I have known well the flavors of the countryside, Santander, the coast and of the Caribbean, as well as the distinct tastes of the paisa heritage, which have always been present at home. I remember our family gatherings, especially at the holidays when all cousins would meet. From whipping melcochas with panela or brown sugar, to preparing delicious stuffed turkeys, our grandmas always brought tradition to the table and taught us new things. Since then, I discovered my interest in catering and I got to see chefs prepare food for conventions and events on a grand scale. Later on after my family moved, I learned about rich international cuisine, and about the variety of Latin American foods, which I enjoy more now living in the United States. I like cooking all types of meals, and every week I try and invent something new. Cooking is something I enjoy doing with my husband and daughters. I am a journalist and have devoted myself to creating useful and entertaining family content, especially for moms who, like me, are always striving to care for our families as best we can. I am currently the editor of Qué Rica Vida! I enjoy my job and I am committed to bringing you great content about all the foods you love, so you can continue enjoying Lo Rico de la Vida.
