Ruano learned to cook from his mother and grandmother and attended culinary school but ultimately feels that he has learned the most from working under other famously known Chef’s such as Thierry Blouet. Working in kitchens around the world Ruano learned about the importance of dedication, passion and discipline. His kitchen is filled with young people straight out of culinary school because he wants to help mold the next generation of chefs in Mexico.
