Tere’s family ran a fishing business where she became well versed in the local fishing species used in the culinary styles and flavors of local traditional seafood cooking.
Cooking has always been a passion for Teresa, who likes to combine the rich and bold Mediterranean, Caribbean, Creole and Peruvian cuisines; she believes this is her secret for the creation of culinary magic.
After finishing her studies in gastronomy she worked as a chef in hotels, fine dining restaurants, banquet kitchens and at the same time she took international cooking courses.
Eventually she had the idea of opening her own restaurant, a dream that came to fruition in June of 2015. The name of the original restaurant was MadFish Café.
