I’m Esteban, (Ehsteve, Teban, and Steve are all fine too) and I currently live in Southern California. I received a Bachelors Degree in Public Relations with a Minor in Graphic Design from Humboldt State University, and I currently work in PR/Digital Marketing during the day.

I decided to start Chicano Eats because I’m proud of my roots, and I’d like to invite you to experience un pedacito de mi cultura and traditions through food.

As a Chicano (or Mexican-American) I have the privilege of being part of two completely different cultures, and I hope you get to enjoy recetas I grew up with and stories from my experience as a queer Chicano.
