Meet Ana Quincoces, Chef and Author, of Cuban Chicks Can Cook and Creator of Skinny Latina Million Dollar Marinade.
Hi, my name is Ana Quincoces. I’m from Miami, Florida and I am kind of a jack of all trades. I am a lawyer turned author, turned chef/cook, and now a creator of a food brand. And I kind of stumbled into the food world quite by accident. I wrote my first little book as a legacy to my two wonderful daughters. My first book was called Cuban Chicks Can Cook. I wrote it because I saw that there was just a lot of cookbooks out there that weren’t authentic Cuban food. They were more fusion and everything happened to have a little mango sauce on it and suddenly they thought that was Cuban. And I knew that real Cuban food didn’t have mango sauce. And so I thought, if it isn’t out there, I’m going to write it myself. My most recent endeavor was my Skinny Latina Million Dollar Marinade and I call it Million Dollar Marinade because it hasn’t made me a million dollars yet but this is something that I believe should be in every cabinet of America. I’m kind of like the Pied Piper of cooking. I think that everyone will feel better. We just launched this nationally and I’m really excited about that. We’re doing other marinades and rubs and other sauces, and if you log onto my website, skinnylatina.com, you can find out where it’s available. And I would love to hear from you guys on social media @AnaQooks. It’s A-N-A Q-O-O-K-S on both Twitter and Instagram, and I would love to hear from you.
