Hi there! I’m Gabriela, the gal behind Gourmet Gab. I focus on simple, healthy recipes and believes people should have fun in the kitchen!
I’ve been passionate about cooking and baking since I was five years old. I started this blog during my freshman year of college in 2010 – ten years ago! Today, I work on the social media team at Food Network. It’s a total dream job and I love being surrounded by the food scene of New York City. At Food Network, you can see me teach live cooking classes on the Food Network Kitchen app and on a few digital series like Experimental Eats (I ate like The Rock for a day!) and Taste Test (I’ve tried 21 cheeses from Trader Joe’s!).
I’m known for my crazy curly hair (I’m half Cuban!) and my love of Trader Joe’s. When I’m not roaming the aisles of the grocery store or doing Sunday meal prep, I love taking classes at Orangetheory Fitness and crossing off restaurants on my New York City bucket list.
Food has always been the center of my world. When I was little, my parents let me go crazy in the kitchen! I would pick ingredients from the pantry to create my own concoctions and film my own cooking shows. I would stack books and games on top of my Dad’s Cuban bongo drums, place our old school video camera on top and film myself hosting my own cooking show. I’d talk to the camera for hours with my imaginary audience!
Today on the blog, you’ll see healthy recipes featuring super colorful produce and healthy proteins. I love recording my cooking on Instagram Stories, so come hang out and follow along! I’m so happy you made it to the blog and hope you can take away a little inspiration.
