I am a transgender healthy Latin cooking chef that serves vegan Puerto Rican gluten free cuisine. I came into healthy Latin cooking as I was once over 220 lbs! I have maintained a weight loss of over 70 lbs for 29 years. In my journey I discovered many things. One of them is a passion for cooking delicious Puerto Rican cuisine. I have experienced many different food plans and have come to a zest and love for vegan cooking. I consider this a specialty and honor, especially in the Puerto Rican/Latin community. My process also included coming out as a transgender Latina. My personal passions are disco music, Marilyn Monroe, Donna Summer and animal prints! Music production, songwriting, graphic art are also creative outlets for me. My online cooking show entitled, "Soraya's Fierce Cooking Show: drew attention from The New York Times, The Daily News and NBC Latino. This enabled me to be a former contestant on Food Network's Chopped show. I have a food stand at the farmers market here in Long Beach California. My dining experience is quaint, upbeat, smoke free and joyful with a couple of DJ spins to disco and salsa music! Enjoy delicious Vegan Puerto Rican cuisine and be prepared to show some disco dance moves after our meal! Looking forward to meeting you!
I'm in my fifties
What to expect at Soraya's place
Amazing experience and delicious food! Soraya is very welcoming and took great care of us. I felt as if I was at a friend's house for dinner even though this was the first time we met. I've had minimal experience with Puerto Rican food so this was a real unique treat for me! My meateater boyfriend also loved the vegan food! Soraya is very passionate about healthy cuisine and I very much enjoyed our conversations. I would definitely do this again! 5-stars all around!!!
