I'm the Guy Who Created Hispanic Kitchen
Hello! I'm the founder of Hispanic Kitchen. I started this community to provide a venue for those who love Hispanic food to talk about it, share recipes and tips, interact, find fellow Hispanic foodies and celebrate the variety of Hispanic cuisine found right here in the USA, Mexico, the Caribbean and all the way down to Tierra del Fuego at the very tip of South America.
A little bit about me: My hometown is Miami, Florida. My parents fled Cuba's repressive Communist regime in 1961 for freedom here in the United States. When they arrived, they settled in Hoboken, New Jersey. In 1965, they moved to Los Angeles. A few years later, they moved to Miami, where I was born.
I grew up in an extended Cuban family and eating food from my grandma's kitchen. I did, however, get my fair share of the Golden Arches. But it wasn't until I was older that I really started to appreciate Cuban food and other cuisines. I realized, too, that food is intertwined with culture. I guess you could say this site is a portal by which we can hang on to - and enrich - our food heritage.
I hope you enjoy visiting and contributing to Hispanic Kitchen. By no means is this site a completed project. It is a journey and not a destination. I hope you will come along for the ride and invite others as well. I encourage you to send me your suggestions and ideas. If you would like to volunteer as an admin to help me with the site or to help get the word out, let me know.
If you have any questions about the site, send me a message over Hispanic Kitchen's network, or if you are not a member, fill out the Contact Form and I'll get back to you pronto.
Thanks for your support!
