For those of you who did not read my last post Debora Fadul is a dear friend of mine and simply put Guatemala's most talented and creative young chef. She's also the star of "Cosina Kreativa" a series of TV capsules by Canal Antigua dedicated to show people how to approach the art of cooking in a more creative manner. 

If you wish to learn about Debora's work and methodology, you can visit her blog where she shares on a daily basis some of her most memorable cooking experiences. Who knows maybe she'll even share a cooking secret or two. 

Meanwhile enjoy my interview with Deby. At the end of our interview I asked Deby to pose for the camera wearing my collection of funky eyewear. Let us know which one is your favorite pic.

Deby's boyfriend actually designed this converses' for her, pretty amazing!!!

You can tell Deby leans for tribal inspired accessories

A very special piece for Deby, made by her boyfriend. Just so you know he's quite the creative guy. Deby also has the coolest clutch bag made of a Fedex envelope also made by Gio.
