Hi, my name is Luchita, and I want to thank you for stepping by into my web site to know more about my business and myself. Everything started 40 years ago in my homeland country Peru. I was born in el Callao city port; which is one of the most famous ports in Peru and South America.
The passion for cooking, specially bakery, was born with me, and since then, I have been making and preparing the traditional Peruvian bakery to my family, neighbors and my clients. Due to the high demand of my Alfajores, Cakes, desserts and other Peruvian bakery goods, I was forced to start my own business in Peru and US.
My family and myself migrated to the United States 30 years ago to start a new life. My traditions, customs and bakery came along with me as well. I have transferred my secrets to my daughter and my granddaughter who, along with me, work in this business too.
I rethought and replanned my business in US with the same spirit and love I started it in Peru, and after a long time of hard working, I have finally consolidated it and established it in US. Today, I want to invite you to join me to enjoy and delight the traditional Peruvian bakery.
Luchita and Pochita.
