I was born in my beautiful and beloved Puerto Rico. Since it is located on the Caribbean it benefits from a wonderful variety of fauna and flora which thrill even the most well-traveled gourmand. In addition to having a plethora of fresh ingredients, Puerto Rico is fortunate to benefit from the fusion of many different ethnicities and cultures, all which combine to make it a gastronomic paradise. Ever since I was a child I was always fascinated by cooking. I enjoyed helping my mother in the kitchen, and then I began to create my own recipes. Now as an adult I am fortunate to have an entire arsenal of utensils and equipment which I use to come up with even more new recipes, or adventurous variations on classic ones. My goal and my pleasure is to make every breakfast, lunch and dinner special and unforgettable. I write about the gastronomy of my beautiful country in my blog, Sazón Boricua.
