Daniel is a trained chef and cooking teacher, who has always had an interest in food and enjoyed learning to cook from his grandmother when he was a little boy. Later, he went to culinary school in Canada and worked in several fine-dining restaurants there, only to return back to Mexico to learn more about Mexican and Yucatecan food. Though he can prepare Italian, Japanese and Midwestern food with flair, his true passion has always been authentic Mexican and Yucatecan cuisine using local produce and traditional cooking techniques. Besides his passion for cooking, Daniel also enjoys travel, music and coffee. Daniel is excited to share his knowledge and teach more people how to cook Mexican food.
