My passion for cooking started at a young age. I was introduced to cooking by my grandparents and parents. I've been told by my family that I share my grandfather's passion for cooking. My grandfather would prepare meals for large groups of people using ingredients sourced from his backyard. To this day, I can still see his passion for cooking and food through the bountiful 50 foot mango tree that he planted in my aunt's backyard in Hawaii nearly 40 years ago. Growing up in a household with two working parents, I had to learn independence at a young age and it began with cooking. When my mom wasn't working she was showing me around the kitchen. Something that began as a responsibility soon turned into a curiosity, slowly turned into my hobby, and is now one of my passions. Through the meals I've hosted, I have been able to portray my style of cooking, which is a blend of my travels, upbringing, experiences, and Filipino culture. Carlos Lorenzo is a wine professional. He attended the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York to pursue a career in the culinary field as a cook/chef then later transitioned to focus his work and studies in the hospitality and wine business. During his time in New York, he staged -- an unpaid internship -- in the kitchens of Daniel, Le Bernardin, Prune, and EMP, to name a few. Before Carlos worked with us, he was a Cellar Manager and part of the team that set up Verve Wine in San Francisco. There, he worked alongside Eric Railsback and Master Sommelier Dustin Wilson wherein he honed his skills and knowledge with the wine business. Furthermore, he is studying for his certifications under the Court of Master Sommeliers.
