Cesar Barajas, Taste Restaurant Executive Chefchef@casacupula.com
Originally from Guadalajara, chef Cesar Barajas was born to a family of restaurateurs, so it’s only natural that he grew up in the kitchen, learning how to cook under his mother’s guidance. He moved to Puerto Vallarta eight years ago to join his father working at a restaurant, where he learned what the business was all about and fell in love with the culinary arts. Last year he joined Taste Restaurant at Casa Cúpula, making this his first season supervising its cuisine.
