Pastry chef and griller Bianca Castro Cerio has been awarded with “El Taco de Oro” (Golden Taco) in Dubai for her career and her promotion of Mexican confectionery abroad. It should be noted that though this award tends to be given to Mexican cooks that live outside of Mexico, this is the first time that it has been given to a specialized chef that resides in Mexico.

The chef, who is a Mexicali native, was inspired by her grandmother, who transferred her her love for pastries and the secrets of Italian traditions. With Baja Californian roots and northeast Mexican culture, Bianca has managed to create delicious desserts using grilled and smoked techniques.

Her talent and dedication have allowed her to stand out in the Mexican gastronomic scene and transcend borders, taking Mexican pastries abroad. This award is an acknowledgement of her career and contribution to the promotion of Mexican gastronomy.

According to Lorousse Cocina, she and her grandmother who is of Italian heritage, Norma Trenti, who is a partner at ByBiaNca Bakery and Catering, joined forces to support doctors in hospitals when the pandemic began.
