Chef Grace Ramírez
Grace Ramirez is far from your average television chef. This vivacious and stylish icon, known as ‘La Latina’ has lived all around the world and not only cooks exquisite Latin cuisine, but also empowers children, women and minorities to find their personal power and passion through educating them about every aspect of food, including creating a healthy relationship with it.
Miami-born, but raised in Venezuela, Grace moved to New York when she was just 24 years old, where she got her big break in culinary television working on the famed Throwdown with Bobby Flay on Food Network after producing and directing for some of the largest television networks including MTV, and Nickelodeon.
Chasing her desire to continually challenge herself, Grace left her coveted role at Throwdown with Bobby Flay after three years to return to her culinary roots as a contestant on Masterchef USA.
Grace is also actively supporting numerous relief efforts throughout the world for Haiti, Puerto Rico and Venezuela, working with World Central Kitchen, Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos, World Child Cancer, Woman Kind & Wellness in the Schools, among many other organizations.
Grace returned to the Food Network and New York and is currently the networks’ only star in history to host feature programs both in North America (Cooking Channel USA) and South America (Food Network Latin America’s Destino Con Sabor) simultaneously. She frequently appears on many cooking programs, including The Dish on Dr. Oz, Food Network’s Beat Bobby Flay, ABC’s The Chew, Univision’s Despierta America And Telemundo’s Un Nuevo Dia.
Grace’s highly anticipated second book, The Five Ingredient Electric Cooker Cookbook, which shows people how they can make healthy and delicious food quickly, is now available on Amazon. Her first book, ‘La Latina’, was a bestseller in New Zealand and is also on sale in Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States
