Latin Vegan Cooking

Born in Colombia, Silvana grew up among a rich food culture and agricultural tradition where making food from scratch was the norm, cans and frozen food were nowhere to be found. She showed a strong curiosity when visiting farmers markets with her grandmother, asking endless questions about the herbs and vegetables on offer. 

She has travelled extensively, always learning about new cooking techniques, visiting markets for inspiration and learning new recipes from the locals. After a drastic career change, she decided to pursue her true passion: nutritious, plant-based cooking. In 2015, her vision became a reality: Soul Cocina, a plant-based company that focuses on providing nutritious, innovative meals to people from all walks of life. Her delicious, healthy meals can be catered to special events and are found at different farmers markets in the triangle area.
