    BIENVENIDOS A YEN TEJADA CHEF DE CUISINE

    Saludos! As we gear up for our busy Holiday season, we wanted to officially introduce to the Portland dining public our new Chef de Cuisine, Yen Tejada – Bienvenido Yen! Yen is joining our Andina team at a propitious time and brings with him a unique set of culinary and management skills developed over an international career, from Peru to Germany, Costa Rica, Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Cuba and (now) the United States. Yen’s background encompasses a diversity of experiences, from cooking at high-altitude mining camps in Northern Peru (think catering at 15,000 feet) to opening the first high-end butcher and charcuterie shops in Lima to working under the celebrated chef Nobu in Miami, FL. Combined with his Chinese-Peruvian heritage, Yen’s extensive training in traditional Japanese cuisine adds a new dimension to Andina’s exploration of Peruvian food, expanding into the Nikkei (Japanese-Peruvian) and Chifa (Chinese-Peruvian) styles of cooking. We are thrilled to welcome Yen and his family to Oregon and look forward to sharing the fruits of our work together in the years (and Thanksgivings) to come! Warmest wishes, Peter Platt
