‘’Por q comemos?’’

(Why do we eat?)

For energy, a whim of trying to find old memories.

We have different motives but, Do we know how does our decisions in what do we eat affect the world around us?

In  Por Q´Comemos? We wish to set the ambiance to get the conversation going. An experience around one table which leaves a message and a memory. Our grain of sand using food to create a better place.

Story

We are born inspired in a new gastronomic movement born in the US and Europe called “Pop- Up Restaurant. The idea is to create special events changing location constantly so we can create expectation and achieve an experience that only lasts for a limited time.

“Porqcomemos?(Why do we eat) is born with the idea to learn on the go, I was born Guatemalan but currently living in La Paz, Bolivia I decide to start there moving upwards back home. A trip starts with a dinner in Bolivia then a few more in Ecuador and one more in Colombia. Today the traveling continues in Guatemala to rediscover local gastronomy an present my interpretation of it.

A Little About Me

Born in Guatemala City, got out to Buenos Aires, Argentina with the intention of learning cooking as a hobby, a few months in I fell in love with it and knew that´s what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Cooking took me to the Culinary Institute of America where I spend two years immerse in fine dining and staging in Spain at Iñigo Lavado restaurant. After school went to Azurmendi Restaurant (3 Michelin Star) in Bilbao and competing in the Bocuse D`Or 2013 as the Guatemalan Commie Chef. The kitchen took me to Bolivia, Gustu restaurant (No. 17 Latin American list), where I got the confidence and learned to use the kitchen as a method of exploration of a culture. The adventure starts in South America using pop-up dinners to learn and connect with different gastronomies. Today the trip continue in Guatemala trying to rediscover what Guatemalan Contemporary cuisine is in my opinion.
