    I have a friend, Rocio Siso, who came to the United States from Spain 10-15 years ago in order to follow her culinary passion. She grew up in a comfortable lifestyle in a part of Spain called Galicia, where she enjoyed quality food and wine on a daily basis. Her desire to be a chef was halted by her family, who stereotyped chefs as male; Females who could cook were good homemakers. She knew that this stereotype was common in Spain, and that she would not be able to follow her dream there. She moved to the United States, finally won the green card lottery, and is now creating masterpieces at Nine-Ten in La Jolla, CA. I am so proud to have her as a friend, and am amazed by her talents.

    Our parents taught us to cook, my youngest brother is an amazing griller with the ability to make any cut of meat delicious and tender and we all enjoy being together. What I like the most is getting us all in the kitchen and each of us taking on a task. I’m the only lefty and find carving difficult. I bet this set of knives would really make a difference for me #girlswithknives
