Welcome, my name is Junior and this is my food blog.
I am a second generation American raised in South Florida and my ethnic background is from Puerto Rico and Panama. I’m a computer savvy guy with an AS Degree in Network Administration and a great passion for food. More specifically, I love Caribbean food, because it reminds me of home.
One hot day in January 2016 I realized that I can actually combine my love for technology, my I.T. knowledge and my passion for food and build a food blog. So this is how Kitchen De Lujo came to be!
On this amazing food journey around the Caribbean Islands I’m not alone. By my side I have my Cuba-born, South Florida-raised spouse named Grisel (commonly known as “G”). She is actually a medical assistant, studying to be a registered nurse. Together we travel around different states and the Caribbean Islands in the pursuit of new – and old – delicious recipes.
So through our food blog, we share with you some mouthwatering recipes from all around the Caribbean Islands. Mainly, we recreate Cuban and Puerto Rican food recipes, because of our cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
But our trips are not our only source of tasty Caribbean recipes. Since both my spouse and I live in South Florida, many of our friends are also from different parts of the Caribbean Islands. Apart from their friendship, I have also gained much knowledge about many different recipes from all around the Caribbean region. Everything I know about Caribbean food is displayed in Kitchen De Lujo!
I hope that my blog will help you discover the Caribbean Islands. Most people love the Caribbean region for its beautiful sceneries. With my food blog posts, I hope to make you love the local cuisine, as well.
My girlfriend and I are not TV professional chefs. We’re just two food enthusiasts who want to show you the secrets and recipes of the Caribbean cuisine. I am also not a fan of recipes that come with 5 paragraph essays, and I would like to keep it short and simple for you guys. So remember; if we can recreate a recipe, you can do it, too!
So welcome to Kitchen De Lujo! Scroll through our food blog and join us on our food journey around the Caribbean Islands!
