Author, radio host and Mexican chef Molé Mama celebrates home chefs and traditional recipes that excite the palette and warm the heart. Using the same techniques and tools her grandmother carried over from Mexico decades ago, Molé Mama makes one constant assertion: Every recipe has a story!
With a smile on her face and a wiggle in her hips, Molé Mama opens her Silicon Valley kitchen to the world with genuine excitement!
For Molé Mama, cooking is all about passing on family heritage one recipe at a time. In the modern age of fast food and preservatives, a hot, home cooked meal, made with love and shared with loved ones, goes a long way. With every cooking video she makes, Molé Mama hopes to inspire other chefs to carry on the traditions and share their stories of family and comfort food.
ABOUT MOLÉ MAMA
Diana Silva is a San Francisco-based home chef, video blogger and radio host. Her Molé Mama Recipes YouTube channel celebrates family recipes, cooking delicious meals at home and adding love to every recipe. Diving into her Latina roots, she uses her magical molcajete, and other tools and techniques that make her food taste like grandma used to make back in Mexico. Along with her guest chefs, Diana explores recipes and traditions from all over the world and the stories that keep them alive.
Diana is calling everyone to return to their kitchens and to preserve their living and passed ancestor’s favorite recipes and stories for future generations. “We need to try to preserve our cultures and not just let those favorite recipes disappear forever. The common thread of every cherished family recipe is that they were homemade with love, and that’s the real secret ingredient,” says Diana. For many home chefs, cooking is their preferred love language, and that’s why we cherish their recipes. Their love has the power to transcend an ordinary recipe into magic!
Diana encourages everyone to preserve those precious recipes and the stories that make them special. She invites those whose recipes have been lost or have faded over time to subscribe to her YouTube channel, there are plenty of recipes and traditions to share, and you just might be inspired to create your own because, “Every Recipe Tells a Story.”
