Founder and Head chef: Elizabeth Mostacero

Elizabeth Mostacero is a Peruvian-born chef, raised in the urban setting of Peru until the 90s, when she moved to the United States. She has studied as an event planner and business owner here in the United States, as well as trained with fellow chefs in Lima.

Elizabeth believes in taking out the "fusion" in some of Peru's most classic meals. Her events and food bring back a sense of nostalgia for those who've had a similar upbringing. For those new to South American flavors, it's an exciting new journey and also a comfortable home-cooked meal.
