“My favorite food memory is being a kid around aunts and uncles eating the food I like to make now.”
Q: What’s your cooking background?
Ivan: I went to Le Cordon Bleu back in 2008 and learned how to cook. On top of that my mom is a great chef on her own and I’ve been learning her recipes that have been passed down by grandma.
Ivan: I use nothing but fresh ingredients in my menu. As a kid these were my favorite dishes to eat and here I am now making them with a twist of my taste.
Q: What do you think about when you make these dishes?
Ivan: I think about Mexico and my culture. Think about family gatherings. Tacos are more enjoyable when you are with your loved ones. My favorite food memory is being a kid around aunts and uncles eating the food I like to make now.
“Love the tacos!!! Meat was perfectly seasoned and tender!! And the sauces were my favorite!! So much flavor! Love the red sauce and avocado! I finally found my go to spot for Mexican food ! ! !”
Q: Where did you grow up? What kind of food did you grow up with?
Ivan: I grew up in Avondale park here in Chicago. I always grew up eating Mexican food with salsas and lots of tortillas.
