Luis Cabrera was born in Mexico City and at the age of 18, he won a scholarship to study at a University in Italy. He studied International Relations and at the same time Culinary Arts. While working in Venice, He learned the vegetable Carving art of Mukimono. Working around the world as a chef (Mexico, US, Ireland, Italy, Australia and Central America) he always liked to add Aztec influences to his cooking and also as part of large buffet decorations for special events.
Cabrera arrived in NZ in 2008, and since then has been a big admirer of the art of Maori Carving (Whakairo). As soon as he got the opportunity to learn, he took it and was lucky enough to be trained by Master Carver Natanahira Pona. He always allowed/encouraged Luis to reflect his Aztec heritage in his carvings.
