Executive Chef Mel Mecinas, has built his culinary career on passion and years of learning by doing from the some of the best chefs in the industry. Mecinas credits his nine years working with famed Chef and Restaurateur, Joaquim Splichal as the backbone of his training. “I learned the value of elegant presentation, and the importance of using only the highest quality, freshest ingredients. It’s how I learned to be the best, and the most creative at what I do.” These culinary lessons are evident in every dish Mecinas and his team create for Talavera – from utilizing local, organic ingredients, to crafting delicate presentations and new flavor combinations. In 2015, Mecinas accomplished a life-long dream to prepare and serve a six-course menu to a sold out crowd in the famed James Beard House. Mecinas took the opportunity to showcase a meal inspired by the flavors closest to his heart – the flavors of his hometown, Oaxaca, Mexico.

 

Executive Pastry Chef Lance Whipple started his pastry career working in all aspects of the culinary arts while attending the Western Culinary Institute in Portland, Oregon. It was there where he found his passion for pastry and baking, including infusing modern twists, innovative elements and seasonal ingredients into classic dessert creations. Constantly pushing the boundaries in dessert creation, Whipple ensures that guests in Talavera end their dining experience on a very memorable sweet note.

 

 

Restaurant Chef Samantha Sanz was born in Nogales, Mexico, where she was raised in a family-owned restaurant and spent her free time watching her grandfather cook while she snacked on bean burritos wrapped in handmade tortillas. “There were no PB&Js when I was a kid,” says Sanz. “I tasted everything. I was convinced that the love and hard work that went into every dish was what made everything taste so good.”  After completing culinary school and a successful stint at popular local restaurant Virtu, Sanz is putting her own love and hard work into the dishes at Talavera.
