Jorge Bravo

Jorge L. Bravo is the founder of Hispanic Kitchen, the first English-language social network devoted exclusively to Hispanic cooking. Jorge's goal is to provide a connection to Latin culture through food. He's a native of Miami, which is home to the largest Cuban community outside of the island and home to many other large Latin communities, among them Colombian, Venezuelan, Nicaraguan, Peruvian, Argentinian, Mexican, Puerto Rican and Spanish. Living in this melting pot of Latin flavor is what helped spark his vision for creating Hispanic Kitchen.
