Chef Santiago was born in Peru, surrounded by Peruvian flavors. From a young age, he loved to cook. When he moved to New York with a suitcase and a dream, he was encouraged to follow his passion and enter the culinary world professionally.
Santiago realized he wanted to share the exquisite flavors of Peru with the world. He cooks from the heart, which is evident in his dishes.
He owned the award-winning Out of the Blue Peruvian fusion cuisine food truck and topped the list of the best foods truck in Asheville. Chef Santiago was the first to offer residents and guests of Asheville authentic Peruvian flavors.
