Born and raised in NYC, Chef Zee is a first-generation American whose parents emigrated from Cuba and The Dominican Republic. She learned to cook from her grandmother who always taught her to put flavor above all else. When her grandmother passed away, Chef Zee dedicated herself to teaching others how to make their favorite comfort foods. She wanted newbie and experienced cooks to reclaim their space in the kitchen. Chef Zee loves playing with flavors creating savory and tasty dishes that her audience can proudly share with their friends and family. As someone who straddles multiple cultures, it was important to Chef Zee that she honor and celebrate the traditions of her ancestors. Chef Zee believes that food is a cultural currency that transcends the spoken word. She invites viewers to join her at her virtual dinner table each week on her YouTube Channel– Chef Zee Cooks.
