Food Creative Mercedes Golip

Mercedes Golip grew up in Caracas and lived for many years in Miami before settling in New York. Her cooking style does not adhere to strict Venezuelan traditions, she creates dishes with classic foundations, reinvented and influenced by other cuisines — a metaphor for her life. As a creative and curious home cook, Mercedes loves spending long hours in the kitchen preserving and even planting her own food, she is also an experienced consultant and creative producer in the marketing world; casual food stylist, recipe tester and developer for media outlets and blogs. Mercedes hosts Venezuelan-inspired pop-up dinners and teach cooking classes to spread out the word about the food she loves. This project is highly driven and inspired by local producers and the amazing vegetables they grow. Currently Mercedes lives in Astoria. When she’s not behind a stove, you can probably find her looking for inspiration at farmers’ or flea markets, or planting herbs and heirloom tomatoes.

Recently, Mercedes developed an eBook, Arepas, A Colorful Story, a step-by-step guide on how to make colorful arepas with vegetable dyes. The eBook focuses on one color, covering other techniques with the hope to inspire readers go beyond. Find out more at Arepas Por Venezuela
