"One of the most important things that I realized is that I am here to serve and my tool is food," Hilary Metcalfe Ramirez, chef/owner of FENTO and author of the online natural foods journal Hilary Eats told us over a cup of herbal tea recently.
With a head full of dreams but still on very straight and palate tuned to the vibrant, rich flavors of the Mexican food she grew up with, Hilary exudes a steady and easy calmness one might not expect of a small-business owner and entrepreneurial chef. In fact, her philosophy is Flow. Cook. Eat. Repeat.
She tells us more about the quilt of feminine energy that inspires her, how pop-ups paved the way and why eating with her hands is one of her best food memories.
