Here Are 25 Latino Chefs Who Are Cooking Amazing Food Across The U.S.


Food is the thing that brings people together. Whether or not you agree with someone’s politics or world view, you can usually agree with them on one thing: That food is delicious, and eating delicious food will make all of us happy. And for anyone that’s been living under a rock, you should probably know that Latin food has become increasingly popular in the U.S., whether or not you are Latinx yourself. Whether it’s Cuban food, Mexican food, Peruvian food, and so much more, there are restaurants opening up all across the country that make me proud to be Latina.

And where there’s a great Latin food restaurant, there is a phenomenal Latinx chef behind it. And in fact, some Latinx chefs have more than one while others are actually teaching and spreading our love of Latin food in other ways (such as through the writing of cookbooks or their work on television). From Food Network favorite Aarón Sánchez to PBD darling Pati Jinich, here are the 25 best latinx chefs cooking up and serving great food all across the U.S. Get ready to roll up your sleeves and dig into all of that incredible sabor!
