Hi, I’m Pilar Hernandez
I was born and raised in Chile, moved to Houston, Texas in 2003 without knowing how to cook and speaking no English. Today, I’m a cookbook author and leader of 2 community gardens. I will show you how to cook Chilean food with American ingredients you find in your supermarket. I’ll challenge you to try exotic fruits like lucuma or maqui, and our favorite cereals wheat berries and quinoa.
Welcome to my Chilean Kitchen!
