"Growing up in a big Italian family, I learned how to cook from the age of 5! I love what I do and it shows! I believe in keeping it Fresh and Healthy & simply spiced so the true flavor of the food shines through!"
"From backyard BBQ to white-linen country clubs, I have the ability to take a variety of mixed matched ingredients and produce a flavorful delicious meal. Given these talents I believe I can make an outstanding dish everyone will enjoy."
"For Valenzuela, no amount of national recognition is as satisfying as sharing the delicious, authentic food he grew up loving with the community he now calls home. That passion is what fuels the man behind the wheel of the Taco Bus. Because Taco Bus always wins!"
