About Our Chef and Founder:
Chef Diana Flores, originally from Honduras, moved to Colorado in pursuit of the American dream!
She graduated with honors as a Pastry Chef from Johnson & Wales in Denver, Colorado. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, she actively participated in both online and in-person labs.
Diana’s passion for food, diverse cultures, family traditions, and community inspired her vision and purpose. This led her to leave her teaching career behind and embark on a new path in the culinary arts. After graduating with honors as a Pastry Chef from Johnson & Wales University, she began working with exceptional individuals and mentors, shaping her own identity.
Gallo Pinto Latin Roots was born from Diana Flores’ dream of uniting people through a variety of Central American meals, all represented in a single bowl of rice and beans. Inspired by The Central American Integration System (SICA), an institutional alliance that initially involved five Central American countries
