For Lezama's Catering founder Leti Salama, a passion for cooking comes from growing up in Spain with French parents, which led to time at Cordon Bleu in Paris and Telva Cuisine School in Madrid. For her partner Juan Suarez De Lezo, it was passed down from his mother and grandmother. Both have built their lives around Spanish food, and both have taught cooking techniques to amateurs and professionals all over the world.
Lezama's services can take many forms. First and foremost, there's the cooking classes, where students might learn to make gazpacho, Spanish omelets, tuna empanadas, and delicate pastries. Then there's the pop-up experiences—one-off dinners built around a theme that could occur in any restaurant. The duo also oversees catering and private events to add a tangy flair to any party.

“Go in there ready to have fun and learn. Don't be afraid to ask questions. The chef is very knowledgeable and is willing to answer anything regarding the food. ”
