Chef Gabriel Sánchez Gómez is from the state of Puebla and was born with a passion for food, flavors, Mexican markets and traditional Mexican cuisine. As a young child he spent a great deal of time in the abundant Mexican marketplace, where his single mother worked to support her family. They had few resources however, his mother would save a few pesos each and every day until she had enough to purchase the best meat, produce and spices and some of the more expensive Mexican delicacies such as Huitlacoche (corn truffles). She showed him how to carefully select the finest quality ingredients available and taught him traditional recipes and cooking techniques passed down from generation to generation.
At the tender age of 5, he was often left to care for his younger brothers while his mother worked. She would prepare a meal in advance and leave it for Gabriel to reheat and serve. Even at this young age, he would taste her dishes and then add his own combination of spices and condiments to adjust the flavors for himself and his younger brothers! From this time on, he knew he was destined to be a Chef!
This Cinco de Mayo, Chef Gabriel will share his love and passion for traditional Mexican and Mestizo cuisine. Don't miss this opportunity to sample the authentic recipes and ingredients of Puebla including the famous Mole Poblano!
