A native of Honduras, Chef Wilberto Sauceda has been cooking for more than two decades. His love of cooking was fostered early through his grandmother, gaining a unique understanding of the food system; slaughtering chickens for dinner, picking and cleaning vegetables and watching them come to life on the stove.
Sauceda moved to Miami as he entered middle school and began his career in the service industry. After years of growing his skills at restaurants from a Brazilian steakhouse to a chef-driven Peruvian concept, he joined James Beard award-winning chef Michelle Bernstein. Sauceda spent nearly a decade with the famed chef, helping her open several of her restaurants.
