Born and raised in Maracaibo, Chef Diaz specializes in homeland cuisine. With a focus on authentic roots, Chef Diaz accounts her cooking to her childhood memories of Venezuela in the 70s and 80s in street food, comida de la playa, and family meals. Spending the last 16 years consulting and supplying prominent New York City restaurants and bakeries, Chef Diaz teamed with son, Ivo Diaz, to create a new vision on Venezuelan cuisine and culture.
“Venezuelans are happy, loving people. I want our guests to feel that vibrant culture when they eat our food. And more importantly, to feel at home, especially for those who've become refugees of Venezuela.” -Isbelis Diaz
