Four Directions Cuisine
Indigenous Food, Ingredients & Activism
In a world of mass-production, we crave authentic, beautiful and healthy food to nourish and delight us. Chef Andrea is an Andean Native from Venezuela who passionately blends ancient ingredients with modern creativity to create elevated Indigenous cuisine. Allow her to introduce you to her magical world where you may:
- Sample upscale Indigenous cuisine served with a modern flair
- Source ingredients and tools produced by local and Native American businesses
- Learn about projects producing local, nutritious and culturally appropriate food
Chef Andrea has created thoughtful, unique and innovative dishes by blending regional Indigenous flavors from North, Central and South America. She takes pride in telling Native stories through food – and in her interpretation of Indigenous cuisine, ancient meets modern, thought meets emotion and reality meets whimsy.
EDUCATION & ACTIVISM
As an antidote to the corporate food system that prioritizes profit more than nutrition and the environment, Chef Andrea is involved in a number of efforts to produce local, healthy and culturally appropriate food. She embraces “food sovereignty” projects that centers people and communities in growing, harvesting and preparing healthy food.
INGREDIENTS & TOOLS
Understanding the food is entwined with health, culture, fellowship and community, Chef Andrea is passionate about sourcing nutritious foods and tools locally and from Native sources. She seeks to support businesses and nonprofits that align with these values – and hopes you will consider doing so, too.
