I am Graciela Montaño, a Mexican- born chef with extensive sommelier and pairing studies. I graduated from Colegio Superior de Gastronomia and Escuela de Gastronomía Mexicana, both in Mexico City. I run a TV show every Friday at 12:30 central time on public national channel ONCE TV. I grew up in Mexico City, a bustling metropolis where delicious food is accessible at any hour of the day. I was inspired to become a chef by my family.
My passion is to cook and unite people around a table and create and share memories. My passion is Mexico, its food, aromas, colors, art, history traditions, legends and turning them into a new dish and/ or experience. My passion is to teach and to motivate others to cook and enjoy the joy around a table. They say that “Families that cook and eat together, stay together”. Nothing truer.
My dream vacation is to know each and every corner in Mexico. From its jungles, beaches, woods, deserts to its magic towns and special places. I love my country and even though I have been in many places, each time I return I see it with a different perspective and I always discover, learn and enjoy something different. I would love to visit India, Thailand, Singapur, Japan and Perú, just to name some countries, mainly because of their food and traditions. I have enjoyed so much traveling to Spain, France, Italy, Chile and Argentina, that I wouldn't mind going back again and enjoy them with other eyes.
Graduated from the Mexican School of Gastronomy, History, Art and Culture, where she studied a specialization in Traditional Mexican Gastronomy and History of Art in Mexico City. At the Higher College of Gastronomy, she pursued courses to become a wine professional, a Sommelier, and a diploma in the Technical College. Certified as an Expert Tequila Taster by the Mexican Tequila Tasters Association, Graciela has a great passion for the food, drink, and traditions of Mexico.
Graciela is an incredible guide and chef. She led us effortlessly through Mercado Medellín, showing us so many hidden stands and delicious secrets. She was a fantastic cooking instructor and kept the conversation going the entire time. There was never a dull moment!
