Thank you for your interest in Clean Plate Cooking! Some of the best memories are made around the dinner table and I am grateful to be a part of that special time!

I specialize in making flavorful foods in a healthy manner. All of my meals are nutritious and well rounded. None of my meals contain hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, MSG, Trans Fats, refined sugars or added preservatives.  I insure a healthy balance of  lean, trimmed proteins, fresh produce, olive oil as the primary cooking oil, and a large serving of love!

I love to cook, I love to serve others, and I love hearing that children (sometimes even husbands) are trying new foods and eating their veggies without a fuss. The best part of my day is when I receive an email from someone saying that their family just sat down to dinner for the first time in forever after ordering from Clean Plate, or receiving pictures of one of our Clean Plate kids next to an empty plate of what was once a wholesome meal!

I grew up in my parents restaurant in Orlando, Florida. They came from Cuba to this great country as many others did...with no possessions except for their will to pursue freedom and a bright future for their family. My father was one of the original “food truck” entrepreneurs and later opened a large steak house where my siblings and I thought of waitresses and regular customers as family. My parents ended up owning two other restaurants where I found my first job, so it is no surprise to those who know me that I ended up back in the kitchen.

I love cooking my family recipes from Spain and Cuba but also enjoy pioneering my own culinary creations and exploring flavor profiles from new cultures just as much!

I want to thank you for allowing me to do what I love and for bringing Clean Plate into your home!
