ABOUT THE CHEF:
Paxx Caraballo Moll, a Puerto Rican chef who—on an island nearly entirely dependent on imported food—has been at the heart of a local-ingredient movement for years. Moll was still in art school when he got his start in the kitchen at chef Roberto Treviño’s Dragonfly. “That first night I was wearing skateboarding shoes, so I was slipping all over the floor, but it was the most fun I’d ever had,” Moll recalls. “I was doing a million things; I felt important, like I was part of something. I fell in love (with cooking) instantly.”
Moll went on to work with Puerto Rican pioneers like Alfredo Ayala and collaborates today with Jose Enrique Montes (a 2013 Food & Wine Best New Chef) and continues to strengthen restaurants' relationships with the island’s local farmers
