They quickly discovered they shared a passion for art, design, cooking, creating spaces, community, food, travel...they share a love for the richness of the culture, tradition and artesania of Mexico....they share a desire to create beautiful and interesting objects and spaces, to collaborate in life with all people old and young, to always teach & learn. Their daughter Xiluen was born in San Miguel. They have spent the past 9 years between the U.S. and Mexico, creating and building their vision...Chuparrosa.
connecting cultures and creating community through food + travel.
Chuparrosa is about bringing rich Mexican culture and food to Portland. We have pop ups around town, private events and cooking demonstrations, and we take small groups on culinary + cultural adventures to Mexico. We are always looking to collaborate with others with similar goals and values, and have met wonderful friends and partners along the way!
