Leonor Espinosa, a Colombian plastic artist and activist, is first and foremost internationally known through her work as a chef. In recent years she has received several prizes and awards for her work, including Latin America’s Best Female Chef 2017 and, just a few weeks ago, her restaurant Leo earned a place on the list of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2019.
Born 1963 in Cartago, Colombia, Espinosa spent most of her childhood and youth in Cartagena de Indias as well as in other parts of the Colombian Caribbean. In her cooking, she applies her life experiences and everything she has learned on her journeys.
“Art & Cuisine have always been intertwined. Juliana Duque & C& America Latina give a nice view of that concept and truth.”-Ray Dean
