Influenced by childhood memories with his grandparents, Chef Franco decided to join culinary school. After several years of cooking experiences abroad, working at different restaurants, caterings and other gastronomic businesses, he decided to marry his two biggest passions: Cooking and Teaching.

"I have traveled a lot during my life. Everywhere I have gone, most of my memories include great meals, markets and cooking local dishes with other people. I love receiving travelers at my cooking experience and sharing / talking about food, culture, life, while eating and enjoying." 


Even with the enormous landmass that is Latin America — from Mexico down through South America — and the enormous range of cultural influences, there’s one dish you’ll find in a lot of these countries: empanadas! This delicious baked, or fried, pastry treat is thought to originate with the Galician empanada of Spain, which dates back to the 1500s and which were traditionally made with chicken or cod fish.
