About Cristina Reyes Clark

"I started cooking when I was around 10 years old- with my mother of course- who taught me how to feel the food and its flavors, how to listen to my body, know what it needs, and how choose the freshest products. When I was 21 years old I moved to San Francisco, California, which opened my knowledge and perspective about food. I worked in a couple of great places, took specific cooking classes in my areas of culinary interest. Then I moved back to El Salvador build a healthy vegetarian/vegan restaurant that was also bringing together art, music and sports. It was called Yemayà – Food from the Earth ! I’m now I’m catering for different events independently and you can find me at @cristinayemaya"
