Beatriz is one of the newest members of the H Town team, but she has already proved herself invaluable. She works side-by-side with Chef Hugo as he develops dishes and updates menus, assists with event preparation and teaching new recipe to kitchen staff. Beatriz was born in Guadalajara, Mexico to a family who loved to gather for celebrations which always included wonderful food. She always knew she wanted to be a chef, and after marrying and moving to the U.S. in 2001, she made that dream come true. She is a graduate of the Art Institute of Houston Culinary Arts Program with associates degrees in Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry. Though she lives and works in Houston, Beatriz first met Chef Hugo and Chef Ruben at El Cellar de Can Roca in Girona, Spain when she had an apprenticeship there and the brothers were also there to work in their award-winning kitchen by invitation of the Roca brothers.
