"Making others happy while doing what I love"

An Idea is Born

A Bluffton native with a Latin / Caribbean background, I have a diverse culinary heritage that is both nurtured and natured. Growing up in Bluffton, the Caribbean element shaped not only my palate, but my affinity for experimenting with latin-influenced ingredients while infusing southern ingredients and techniques to perfect recipes with Bluffton's plentiful resources; seafood & farm fresh produce. 



Passion

Born from West Indies and Southern  ancestry – Southern and Latin derived ingredients were a daily norm. Cooking alongside my mother and absorbing the techniques  that make my meals stand out and draw attention to what I do with  much love and passion .
