I wrote the cookbooks in an effort to preserve and document the unique Salvadoran cultural food heritage and legacy for my children, future generations, and food lovers everywhere.
After leaving El Salvador at the age of nineteen, I moved to Washington, D.C., then to Kfar Shmaryahu, Israel, and finally settled in beautiful Los Angeles, California. I graduated from UCLA in 1992 with a degree in Art History.
Delicious El Salvador also won the Gourmand Best First Cookbook in the last twenty years at the Gourmet Gallery at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2015.
Delicious El Salvador has been featured in top media outlets, including CNN Latino, Mundo Fox, esmitv, The Latin Kitchen, Los Angeles Magazine, El Tiempo Latino, and El Salvador.com.
I have been named as a Culinary Ambassador of El Salvador by UCLA Magazine, La Prensa Grafica de El Salvador and Sercano TV. I am married to Joseph Maher since 1988 and we are the parents of three wonderful sons.
