Luis Herrera is a Venezuelan chef, working as sous chef at Cosme NYC, award winning Mexican Chef Enrique Olvera's restaurant in New York City, voted New York Times "Best Restaurant in NYC 2015" and Time Out "Best Mexican Restaurant in the US 2015" and in 2017 ranking #40 on World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.
Coming from a scientific family Chef Luis Herrera got his bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Universidad Central de Venezuela. His culinary “calling” wasn’t until the Summer of 2012, when he visited New York for the first time and worked as a line cook at "Caracas Rockaway" making arepas. Since then Luis knew he belonged in the kitchen. His culinary career started a little later than most chefs would do, so he was determined to catch up fast and get as much experience as possible. In 2013 he attended The Centro de Estudios Gastronomicos (CEGA) in Caracas for Culinary education and got his specialization in Venezuelan Cuisine. He worked at Chef Carlos Garcia's renowned Alto Restaurant, and later returned to NYC and worked in several places around the Williamsburg area, including Zizi Limona, Lighthouse and Roebling Tea Room as well as Rockaway Taco alongside Chef Andrew Fields, before joining the COSME opening team in October 2014.

Born in Caracas Venezuela, Executive Chef Maria Laura Quintero started her culinary career under Chef Helena Ibarra’s mentorship. Chef Maria Laura obtained her Culinary Arts Diploma at The Institute of Culinary Education of New York and is a Certified Health Coach from The Institute of Integrative Nutrition of New York. Upon moving to Armenia, New York in 2009, she started a private catering business, providing fresh vegetables and fruit from her own organic vegetable garden. In 2013, her passion to continue sharing well-made, sustainable food led to the creation of MuchaChula Boutique Catering with long-time friend and business partner Florencia Minniti


Event Creator Florencia Minniti and Executive Chef Maria Laura Quintero, the masterminds behind the MuchaChula Boutique Catering Company, bring you Brooklyn’s hottest new dinner party:
TheBareTable, offers an intimate private dining experience with custom menus created by a rotating line up of outstanding Chefs. Offering, cocktails, wine, a multi-course dinner plus dessert for an intimate number of guests.
Florencia and Chef Maria Laura have used TheBareTable to reconfigure the modern dining experience. HOW? By eliminating the superficial distractions of everyday dining and bringing things back to basics; at a slightly heightened level, of course. Each guest is asked to leave their cell phones and “baggage” at the door, and just show up at the dinner table with the “bare” minimum, to immediately and fully immerse with others and share unique personalities, gestures, stories, ideas. All by the end of the event, all together create a memorable gourmet experience.
