Somethin’s Cooking Presents The Pop Up Kitchen

I’m super happy to announce my new venture. I’ve been meaning to blog about it but I’ve been so busy getting things ready. I will be partnering up with the owner of Pico Pica Rico located in Sherman Oaks & opening a pop up kitchen every Sunday throughout the summer.

I will be cooking/serving authentic Peruvian food & creating Peruvian inspired dishes with a healthier twist. I use local & organic products as often as possible & of course GMO free as well. I can guarantee a satisfied tummy.

I’m not one to boast about my cooking because it speaks for itself, so if you’re in the area come on out.

We are located at 14834 Magnolia Blvd., Sherman Oaks, CA 91403. If you don’t want to wait in line text your order to 818-927-CHEF (2433).

We will only be open on Sundays unless I have an event to cater. Each Sunday there will be a different menu (no one likes boring). I hope to see you this summer!!!






It’s been a minute…

Since I’ve been on here let alone blogged on my thoughts. A lot has happened in the past few months. I took a huge leap in faith…decided to leave the corporate world & focus on my catering again.

I graduated from culinary school back in 2004 but have been a fan of the kitchen since I was 8 or 9 years old. Catering to me is my zen, it centers me. Something about cooking in bulk that just has me in AH! It was one of the scariest decisions I’ve ever made because as a single mother…guaranteed paychecks are always a plus. However, I need to do what makes me happy & if that means I have to work harder in order to play hard…then so be it because at the end of the day, it’s my shit! My time, my schedule & I’m my own boss.

I’ve left all uncertainties at the door that closed in order for me to walk through the door that opened. I haven’t been happier career wise since I stopped catering a few years ago. I’ve had the opportunity to work with a great chef from NYC & catered for Saint Laurent, formerly Yves Saint Laurent, this past week.

Needless to say everything is coming together slowly but surely & I have never been more certain in my life. I’ve realized that in order to achieve success on all levels, one must not be afraid of failure. For failure is one of life’s greatest lessons, how else would you better yourself if you’ve never failed? There’s no need to strive for perfection because perfection is nonexistent when it comes to humans.

I wish for all that 2014 brings the clarity you need…in order for you to achieve whatever it is that you want too achieve. God bless!!!



PS If you live in the SFV/LA area & need a personal chef, cooking classes and/or an event/dinner to be catered please email
