My name is Erika Araujo, I am a Mexican chef born in Mexico City. I never felt so proud to be Mexican until I move to Toronto and I started to cook. I felt in love cooking and then later I reaffirmed my passion in the kitchen of Humber College, when I did the culinary program. Changing from Nursing career to Culinary made me realize my new passion to be a promoter of my own Culture though the Mexican Gastronomy because cooking is a call to act, promote and showing love. I created my company Ixiim.
Ixiim help me to follow my passion, to find my voice in a foreign country that now I call home and though my food I can bring more inclusion to the Mexican community in this wonderful country.
Cooking give me the opportunity to help others, to do new things, met new people, involve in community projects, promote my roots and create delicious food so people can fall in love with the amazing country where I am come from and they can enjoy a Mexican dish to share with family and transport to Mexico in a bite.
