Chef Edna’s heritage is a cultural fusion: growing up with an Austrian father and Italian/Spanish mother in Mexico City, she developed a natural passion for these cultures and cuisines. Color, explosion of flavors and the immense variety makes Mexican food her favorite! The experience of gathering simple, fresh ingredients and sharing unforgettable meals just feeds her soul. For her, food is magical and she believe food has the power to transform, break barriers and bring people together.
