Cuban Colonel Intro



About the Cuban Colonel

As the Cuban Colonel and host of my new cooking show Culinary Conga and sharing my life with my beautiful wife Ana who is an “ Extra Ordinary Chef ”, I consider myself a blessed man. As a Cuban Executive Master Chef in Saint Augustine, Florida to date I have personally severed thousands world travelers that demand the best in food experience. My Cuban Epicurean Cuisine is founded on continually seeking to acquire the highest quality natural ingredients while becoming faster, better and more efficient as I prepare the finest food difficult to find anywhere else. In the 1950's the best chefs from all over the world were summoned to the small Island paradise called Cuba. Next to the Cuban cuisine the most prominent was the Italian cuisine. Since I was a little boy my passion for Cuban and Italian food was insatiable. When food was cooked in our homes the men in the family would drink rum and talk sports. I would stay in the kitchen with the women of my family that all brought their unique magical touch family recipes to life. My grandfather Alfonso started a food empire in Cuba. My mother Rosa's father, Esteban, had orange and sugar crops and raised all kinds of animals for food on his 100 acre ranch in Cienega de Zapata Cuba. Both of my grandfathers embedded in my mind the knowledge that from the ground to the plate everything you do has to be of the highest standard. As a young man I traversed the globe in search of satisfying an insatiable appetite for fine dinning from all parts of the world. I had the great fortune of dining in the best restaurants and meeting the best Executive Chefs in the world. This vast heritage and exposure to the finest foods that this world has to offer has developed my palate. The most incredible gift GOD gave me is my beautiful wife Ana who is an “ Extra Ordinary Chef ”! I consider myself a Food Aficionado and am a private and executive chef for special occasions. I am training an entire new breed of hardworking young people ready to serve all by sharing their mastery. In the coming months our website will be transformed into a destination location where our viewers come to experience the finest Cuban, Italian, Vegetarian and Vegan Cuisines in the casual environment of their home that will simply transport to these countries without the Airfare. Let me teach you my craft is as easy as 123.
