Praise For…


“This book is a testament to family and the mentors that shape a young cook into a passionate, innovative, and ruthless chef. Aarón’s journey is an absolute page-turner, with gritty stories and hilarious anecdotes that make you understand the man behind the restaurants and TV shows.”

— Gordon Ramsay

“Chef Aarón Sánchez’s memoir touched my soul. As a fellow Mexican-American, I grew up a lot like Aarón and shared the same kind of traditional Mexican cuisines every night at the dinner table. I have a new respect and understanding for the recipes that were passed along within my family, and I now have a deeper appreciation, because I recognize that this is connection to my past that will live on forever.”

— Oscar De La Hoya

"Where I Come From is more than a memoir, it is a true testament to Aarón’s passion, infectious energy, and humility. He celebrates his Mexican heritage and his drive to always be learning. As Aarón shares his life experiences, he demonstrates a deep commitment to craft, culture, family, and personal growth that is truly inspiring. This captivating book reminds us that food is dynamic, a form of cultural currency only truly appreciated when shared. Enjoy this honest and brilliant look into his life!"
