​Chef Maribel Rivero

The constant topic of food always goes back to home cooking and that's where you and I will start our cooking conversation.
Cooking to me is about sharing life experiences and traditions with food. I'm motivated by the stories behind cooking and expressing that story into the flavor of the food. In 2017, my brother and I created Yuyo Peruano restaurant as a celebration of my culinary immersion throughout South America, where I connected with the people and the culinary community from Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, and Uruguay. I was recognized by the James Beard Foundation with a Best Chef nomination in 2019.
