Hugo Orozco Carrillo strives to understand and share his traditions through his cooking. From his roots in Mazatlan, Mexico, he derives a deep kinship with the sea and all its riches. His earliest memories of accompanying his father at food markets and his mother, who always had a delicious meal ready for an unannounced guest, instilled in him that food is more than simply for eating - it is for sharing and enjoying, for creating bridges between friends and across cultures. His first job in a kitchen, more than 15 years ago, showed him that the joy of eating and sharing truly begins with the joy of farmers and producers eagerness to create the ingredients prior preparing and cooking!
Hugo is passionate about every link in the chain: from farm to fork. His current culinary project based on his slow food principles began in Tulum, Mexico and is now thriving in Brooklyn, NY as he continues to learn at the side of his wife Stephanie and 2 little ones
