After spending years as a food editor and recipe developer in NYC and as Executive Chef aboard a private yacht on the Caribbean, I created Gastropolita, a catering and private chef company I run from my workshop in Santurce, where I've been teaching locals and visitors about the art of Puerto Rican cooking and our traditional island flavors.

My workshop is in the art district of Santurce, on the premises of a traditional Spanish Revival house built in the 1930's, preserving its original colorful hydraulic tile and high ceilings with the traditional arched divisions. The workshop is set up in an attached space that connects through the back patio and opens up to the driveway. A cozy traditional Puerto Rican space for my guests to feel right at home. Bienvenidos y buen provecho!
