My name is Gabriella, and my husband and I are in the process of our happily ever after! We are newlyweds who rescued our pup Kuda (as in Barracuda), bought a house, and moved to the burbs – white fence and all.

I worked for years in the fashion industry in NYC, but always felt I wasn’t following the right career path.  Thank God for TED talks, because after binge watching those for weeks, I was inspired to find and follow my passion.

The Gourmet Cocina is a true labor of love, and has taken a lot of research and work to get it up and running. My goal is to give as many people as possible the opportunity to eat well and streamline their lives. We are all busy and meal planning very often takes the back burner. Let me do the work for you, and hopefully inspire you along the way.
