Gregory Diaz, also known as Chef Grego, and his wife Nicole Quinones, started Sabor With Love to teach people how to cook traditional Puerto Rican dishes, with their own twist.

“My mom showed us very young how to cook,” said Diaz, who has been cooking since he was 11 years old. “I was raised in a family where we were always cooking.”

While Diaz is cooking, his wife takes care of everything else, such as videotaping, editing videos and uploading them to their social media accounts.

“She does the most important thing,” Diaz said. “Cooking is not the hard part of having a page and creating content; a 15-minute video is like a 5-6 hours of editing.”

In addition to posting cooking videos online, Sabor With Love also provides food truck and restaurant promotions, private chef events and restaurant consulting.
