We are passionate about home cooked fresh food and Mexican flavors.  Hector Guerrero is a self taught chef who has spent years cooking with other chefs and creating his own spin on family recipes.  He loves cooking for friends and family, and thoroughly enjoys sharing and teaching others about his discoveries, along with all that he has learned in his travels and varying work experiences.  Chuparrosa brings the cooking demonstrations and parties to you, but we take care of every detail.  We are well versed in cooking Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Vegan as options.  We have searched for our favorite authentic Mexico food in Portland, to learn that it's right here at home.  

COOKING DEMONSTRATIONS FOR ADULTS:   We have created corporate events for team building for companies such as Nike, Inc and Evanta.  We also host demonstrations for small groups- in their homes or offices.  We have years of experiencing cooking for small events....and we bring everything to you.  Hector loves to share his wealth of knowledge about Mexican food, ingredients, and history.  He is so inspired by his culture, and shares the details in unique and humorous ways throughout his demonstrations.  Class is approximately 2 hours;   Hector shops for fresh ingredients right before the class, included in the price.   Contact us for cooking demo suggestions, or let us know what your interests are and we will give you suggestions and create a menu and estimate for your specific event. 

Invite your friends and family to your space, and we will bring the event to you. We will design the class according to your interests....whether its learning about delicious and healthy simple dishes for cooking regularly with your family, or more intricate and unique recipes for hosting a dinner party, or fun and yummy appetizers for a cocktail party.

Hector begins all classes with some basic information and history about ingredients.  If you are interested in learning some Spanish, he will mix it in as well!  At the end of the class you will of course celebrate and eat your hard work!

Hector loves teaching English and Spanish to children.  We are excited to bring this fun program to you!  Whether it is a preschool program, daycare, camp, Hector brings joy and fun to children through repetitive and creative Spanish activities.  Consistency is key in learning and remembering language, so we think a weekly visit is perfect, but of course we are open to your desires and needs.  Contact us for more information, and to meet Hector to see if it's a good fit!
