In case you missed it Claudia Sandoval was the winner of Season 6 MasterChef on the FOX Network! She’s the first Latina to take the top spot and wow… she so deserves it! We had the opportunity to speak with Claudia on our podcast Girl Talk y Más and she goes into detail about her entire journey. Like many Mexican Americans, Claudia has a passion for cooking. She grew up helping her Mother, Tia’s and Abuelita peel chilies and prepare cactus petals at the age of 4 … so you could say becoming a MasterChef is her calling!
Claudia is a single mom of her beautiful daughter , author of her best selling book A Taste of Mexico and the newly announced international brand ambassador for Tajin … How awesome is that! Claudia put her heart and soul into her MasterChef experience by traveling to places such as the Dominican Republic and learning their techniques and incorporated them into all the Mexican dishes we know and love! Make sure to listen to our podcast interview to hear the story that made it possible for her to even audition and be on the show.. it’s truly amazing the drive and passion Claudia personifies and it eventually led to her dreams becoming a reality!
When you think I'm too lazy, I can't get up, I'm tired, I can't, I won't be able to, Things like this don't happen to people like me, or even I don't deserve it…. Just remember it was one day after another of pushing those thoughts aside that got me HERE! You simply cannot give up. #DreamsDoComeTrue
