Catering | Private Chef | Weddings
Our mission is to show people that healthy eating can be fun, easy, and affordable. By spreading knowledge and creating awareness about the foods that are available to us today, we can share with people how to listen to their bodies and live happier, more energetic, and more fulfilling lives.
We believe that food is the most important and necessary part of our lives. It has the ability to optimize and heal our bodies, stimulate our mind and senses, and provide us with a creative outlet that not only diversifies us, but also brings us together. With a better understanding and a better connection to what we put into our bodies, we are afforded the opportunity to maximize our life experience.
Our promise to you is the same as the promise to ourselves: to do everything we do with love and passion, to always prioritize the quality of our art, to operate professionally and with an open mind, to constantly search for new ways to learn and improve, and finally- to be ourselves.

Chef & Food Artist
Born in Medellin – Colombia, may 16th of 1985. Lived there until I was 11 years old and then moved to Mexico, were I have lived here and there for the last 18 years. This period of consistent changes in my life created in me a personality with a mixture of cultures, fighting for survival within myself. All this riot of things happening and constant learning, left a deep and unconditional love for Mexico and it’s people, my people; it’s fascinating history and off course it’s gastronomy, world icon of tradition and uniqueness. All this without forgetting my roots, my homeland Colombia and all it’s significance in my life.
Since I was 18 years I’ve been working, giving myself the chance to know my strengths and weaknesses in the kitchen and at the same time, immersing in to all kind of gastronomies, places, business and much more that had to do with cooking. Each and every one of them so different, so apart and at the same time so alike. Small bistros, big restaurants, catering services, schools, french cuisine, mediterranean, haut cuisine, chocolate sculptures and much more. From owner of my own restaurant in Playa del Carmen – Riviera Maya, private chef for a high end Boutique Hotel, to executive chef at the Mexican Embassy in the United States. It’s been quite a ride, but no doubts that Sabor Creativo was the best of all, it was the most demanding, tenacious, fun and more significant experience that I have ever lived. It took 3 months of dreaming while backpacking thru Central America, plus almost 27 years of planning until the time was right.
I am positive that everything in life happens for a reason, and Sabor Creativo, just as all my other jobs, happened the way they all did because I had to find myself thru the experiences I was leaving day by day. Not until I knew what was the heart within my passion in life (cooking), that I was going to be ready for the challenge of my existence. Medicine and healing thru food, but not just talking about the nutrition part, but the art and the intention behind everything we do with love and consciousness. For me it goes beyond structures, it nests in the soul and spirit of our work. Alternative Medicines like Ayurveda, Chinese Traditional Medicine, Reiki, among others, have open new doors for me, has change the way I see food and it’s power, now I know that besides my gift, which brings good combinations in to great flavours, and the intention that I put in to the food I create, I can also give treatment to specific illness and conditions, and most important I can help the people I love and others to re-established their natural balance.
So this is me, passionate about life, art, nature, health, dreams and good food off course. I love how life shows us new things everyday, and surprises us with all that we can do and create when we really want it from the heart, without desire or lust, but with great love.
So after 10 years of walking among great experiences, I feel more than lucky, because I can say that I belong to the small group of people that their passion in life is the livelihood of their lives; to have found in the kitchen the perfect formula to express my curious and creative personality, alongside my love for the good life.

Art Director & Sous Chef
Born in San Diego, 18th of may 1980. Lived in a small town called El Sauzal de Rodriguez – Baja California, a place where there was nothing in between my brothers, me, and nature all around us. A small fishing town that on one side we had the pacific ocean and in the other the majestic desert of Baja California, such a beautiful place to grow, tranquility all around it. We lived there until I was 11, when we moved to Mexico City. It was not an easy adjustment, but for sure this change only made me more determined and convinced about what I wanted for myself in the future.
I studied Medicine in Mexico for almost two years, but I realized that the allopathic approach was not what I felt about Medicine, and the importance that has in our lives, so I decided to go for my other passion in life, art. In all the coming and going in my past years, I had the chance to live in the United States and Mexico back and forward, working, living and studying. I finished my high school in New Trier, IL, went back to Mexico, and then had the chance to come back to Connecticut to study my degree in Marketing & Design. Here I found the way to express myself and the way I see life. I never quit on Medicine, always worked my way thru, to work with companies that had to do with health and a better way of living, never forgetting my focus in life.
What I look for life and in everything that I involve myself into, is the improvement of life itself. Everything I do, I look for a way to evolve it in a more efficient way of functioning. The paths my life has taken me, have taught me that there is nothing more valuable that a great experience, no matter what it is. Most of us live doing what we do in search for that amazing experience, and that is where I always focus my work into.
I have a huge passion and a Philanthropic mind, I am one of those individuals who is in constant search to make our world a better livable place. Very happy and enthusiastic about life, and about living the moment. I have a great respect for the great values that makes us better persons, some will say I am antiquated, but I do love to think that there’s nothing more important in life than our own word. To maintain this in an impeccable level is not an easy task, but is one that is worth working for the rest of our journey in this world.
Lately I decided to do a masters in Biological Naturist Medicine, as I believe that there is a better way to achieve health thru a better education and a more wide culinary knowledge. As of today, this is my crusade in life, and I intend to keep researching.
Filmmaker & Travel Writer
My name is John Edward Hunt, and ever since I was a little kid, I was intrigued by worlds beyond my own. The first book my mother bought me was about the Solar System, and at four years old, that's where the dream began. Every time we would visit my grandmother in Cape Cod, I would beg my uncle to watch Star Wars with me. I was fascinated by the idea of being able to travel to places far away that were totally different from one another. Then I lived with my grandfather for a while in Connecticut, who is of German descent, and whose house was ornately decorated with trinkets, clocks, and calendars in German. There was always a German dictionary and language-learning tapes laying around, and occasionally he would teach me some word or pronunciation that was foreign to me. It was so cool to me that in other places people spoke an entirely different language. I decided that I must learn as many as possible! I saw every language as a key to a door, unlocking a whole new world (cue Aladdin soundtrack).
Fast-forward to today; I've managed to become conversational in four languages, lived in five countries, and visited 20. People often ask me how I've been able to travel so much. Usually they assume I was in the military, or an exchange program, or that my family was wealthy enough to fund my adventures. But it was none of those. The bottom line is, I had a burning desire to experience other worlds where life was different, and I took every opportunity or risk that was presented to me that would take me there. The memories and friendships I've acquired, the knowledge and the wisdom that I've gained from these adventures are the most valuable thing I've come to own in my life- high above any material object or 401k. I've come to realize that the world is so big compared to how much time we have on it, that it is impossible to see it all. So when the opportunity to see something new arises, I take it, and I'm passionate about inspiring others to do the same.
