In conjunction with the exhibition Puerto Rico: Defying Darkness, 516 ARTS and Three Sisters Kitchen welcome guest Chef Marc Quiñones for two special events: a full course dinner in the museum surrounded by the exhibition, and a hands-on cooking workshop. Born and raised in the South Bronx, Chef Marc Quiñones grew up immersed in his Puerto Rican heritage watching his mother and grandmother cook delicious dishes from as far back as he can remember. He graduated from the Le Cordon Bleu program at the Scottsdale Culinary Institute. Prior to taking over the helm as Executive Chef at Hotel Andaluz he served as Chef of the Historic Inn & Spa at Loretto in Downtown Santa Fe. He has been featured on Food Network twice competing in Cutthroat Kitchen and on Chopped. He was crowned New Mexico’s “Chef of the Year” in 2017 by The New Mexico Restaurant Association and most recently was featured in Forbes Magazine. Chef Quiñones has also spent time working in New Orleans, Louisiana, Los Angeles, California, New York City and Kona, Hawaii.
