My favorite food for summer is porotos granados with Chilean salad (tomato with onion and coriander), a typical Chilean plate.

Foods I must have in my home are avocados, always avocados!!

Favorite quote related to food: “For is there any practice less selfish, any labor less alienated, any time less wasted, than preparing something delicious and nourishing for people you love?” ― Michael Pollan, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation
