PROFILE

Born in Veracruz, Mexico, Elia Herrera was exposed to the fascinating world of cookery from a very young age. During childhood, culinary exploration was highly encouraged by her grandmother; a pioneer in Mexico’s catering industry - serving all levels of clientele, from celebrities, government officials to the King of Spain.

Seeking to follow in her grandmother's footsteps, Elia enrolled at The Culinary Institute of Mexico. Upon graduating with a specialization in Pastry, Elia 

sought to perfect her craft on an international level, training in Spain, France, Belgium and Italy with some of the top Pastry Chefs in the world.

In 2003, Elia came to Canada, immediately putting her pastry skills to use at acclaimed Toronto institutions; Sassafraz, Mistura and Canoe. Following her dream to bring authentic Mexican cuisine to Canada, Chef Elia Herrera is now executive chef and partner of King Street West’s Los Colibris and El Caballito – adding Colibri to her impressive roster of Mexican concepts.
