L'histoire d'un chef Relais & Châteaux

How did you become a Chef?

I became a chef because food has always been an inspiration to me, since my childhood I was fascinated by flavors. Now, as a chef, I consider myself as a culinary adventurer traveling around Mexico and then outside my country. I have always got amazed by the many opportunities a product can offer, and how it is related to a culture at its deepest aspects.

How would you define your cuisine?

I define my cuisine as tradition inspired and in a constant search. Every approach to an ingredient or technique is an opportunity to learn and develop. Every dish I create intrinsically comes with a charge of my life experiences, memories of travels and friends. 

What are your favorite products and criteria for choosing?

Spices and herbs. I think every culinary culture has a flavor profile based on the ingredients they have in hand. By thinking how to yield the most of every ingredient, that’s a way to give proper respect.

What professions surround you and what would you like to pass on to them?

As a cook, I must convey the sense of community and convey the understanding that there is a chain, and each link has an important role in the final result, whether it is the family meal, or a star dish. Behind each dish there is a community that supports it.

Do you have a Chef’s tip for Sunday cooking?

Embrace different ingredients and cultures trough the act of cooking, tray new flavors. Diversity is  something that makes a kitchen special.
