Minerva Orduño Rincón is a chef, writer and formerly an architect. Born and raised in Mexico, she lived briefly in Spain, but has resided in the United States for much of her life.
She believes cooking is as much an act of love, as it is a show of respect towards the ingredients used and the people producing them. While her true passion is Mexican cuisine, she enjoys the food of all cultures.
In her spare time she gardens and rides horses.
