I’m Olga, the creator, photographer, and creative behind Cocina Republic.

As a first-generation Colombian-American, I’ve always had a deep-rooted love for Latin flavors. This passion led me to culinary school, where I honed my skills and fell even more in love with the richness of Latin cuisine. But life had a twist in store – I ventured into the fast-paced corporate marketing world, bringing my creativity and passion to a different platform.

But as they say, ‘the heart wants what it wants.’ So, I yearned for the thrill of the kitchen, the joy of creating delightful meals, and the satisfaction of sharing it all with others. That’s when Cocina Republic was born – a blend of my culinary experience, marketing understanding, and my profound love for Latin flavors.
