We are a very diverse team coming from several places around Mexico with a different interests and hobbies but with one thing that bring us together, our passion for tortillas and Mexican culture.
Diego S. (Don Trapo)
Mexico City, Mexico.
I have always been attracted by the movement and change since I was a small child in Mexico. As matter of fact I have always been evolving (at least I think so) continuously. From Mexico to the world I had the chance to guide my evolution with the influence of beautiful people from all around the globe.
My first international experience was in Chile, where I made wonderful friends and discovered the love of cooking. Then Germany where I learned how local traditions can be used to enhance the local future. Italy became my second home and true love materialized in Beatrice, my shy wife and with whom we have built a family.
The Italian cuisine went under my skin and melted into a Mexican-Italian Creole style that lacked only one ingredient to have a perfect center of gravity: Tortillas. It was when shy-Bea and I started thinking about opening a Mexican tortilleria. But is only now , with the latest international experience in The Netherlands, where I found the stability, great partners and friends that I could start a new adventure: Mis Amores.
“Mis Amores”reflects the three factors that influence my life: Nutrition and food from my mother, art from my father and brother and the Mexican culture that is in my DNA. With this attempt, I am trying to materialize what I have learned over the past 20 years: cooking, the value of tradition to develop a local economy, love and entrepreneurship.
I studied communication science with focus on photography and media production. I arrived to the Netherlands in 2015 with my Mexican boyfriend Diego A. We were looking forward to making new experiences and in discovering the world. Currently I am working as a portrait and event photographer.
I LOVE TACOS! and to be honest after missing my family, not having the 3 am afterparty tacos is one of the most difficult things of being away from home. This is one of the reasons to be part of this project, my dream is to have a taqueria galeria where I can share my love for Mexican art and cuisine.
I have a technical background with my studies focused in aerospace technology. With Quetzi, I moved to the Netherlands in 2015 and felt very welcomed by the Dutch community since then. At the moment I work as an engineer for the high tech industry in Eindhoven.
I come from a family that goes way back in the craft of making tortillas. My great grandfather, grandfather and uncle had or have tortillerias making a natural step for me to follow the path of my ancestors. Eating is my hobby and food my passion.
César A. González Morales
Mexico City, Mexico.
I possess a background in mechatronics/ mechanical engineering. I had the opportunity to start my master studies in the Netherlands and during my studies I had the chance to live in Sweden and Germany as well. Being away from Mexico made me realize how much our cuisine is part of our lives and how big is the love I have for Mexican food.
By joining this project I get the chance to show the international community one of the reasons I love Mexican food and for the Mexicans abroad to bring them a little piece of home.
Francisco J. Martínez Lozano
I’m an agricultural engineer and have been living more than 10 years in the Netherlands. My professional activities are related to two Dutch universities that have strong contacts with local and international students and Dutch professors.
I’m very interested in healthy food that comes from production systems that are as sustainable as possible.Dishes and products prepared with corn are my favorites and tortillas are the product I enjoy the most. With Mis Amores Tortilleria & Art I will have the opportunity to get fresh quality tortillas, promote in the Netherlands the health benefits corn tortillas have and the promotion of Mexican art.
