About Me

IMG_2578

My name is Manny, I am 22 years old, and I am fascinated by details.  If something interests me I always strive to learn more and I enjoy communicating what I have learned to others.  While my passion for food has been with me for about ten years or so, the last couple of years I have taken this interest to a whole different level.  I have had the extreme fortune to be able to spend the past few years living and studying in Washington, D.C. and experiencing the incredible food culture this wonderful city has to offer.  This, combined with my fascination to health and nutrition have combined in an interesting way: I am highly selective about what I put into my body, but I seek out and savor every nuance these foods have to offer.  What I have discovered is that the healthiest foods this world has to offer are also the most enjoyable.

A gastronomist is one who unites theory and practice in the study of gastronomy, which pertains to food and culture.  Primal means either “original” or “most important”.  In this case it is both: the “primal” way of eating looks to our ancestors’ evolutionary history in search of the most nutritious foods.  As a primal gastronomist, I seek to show how the most nutritious foods from an evolutionary perspective are also the most delicious and culturally relevant ones.
