La Chef Claudia Sandoval es una verdadera representante de la lucha de las mujeres Latinas en EE.UU. y un gran ejemplo de que las madres solteras pueden hacer todo por sus hijos. AVivirLA tuvo la oportunidad de platicar con la aspirante al ambicioso set de cocina internacional en la sexta temporada de MasterChef. Ella posiblemente será la ganadora de esta sexta temporada cuando la final sea en tres semanas y allí mismo ha resaltado las recetas de nuestra cultura a nivel internacional.

Además si llegara a ser ganadora se convertiría en la primera representante latina en ganar la competencia. Sería una gran sorpresa verla ganar esta temporada de MasterChef ya que coincidiría con el Mes de la Herencia Hispana, y honestamente es una de las seis más fuertes participantes gracias a que mantiene sus raíces y tradiciones vivas. Siempre lo he dicho que cuando nos sentimos orgullosos de dónde venimos, eso nos ayuda a llegar más lejos.

unnamed Platicamos de todo un poco en español y termínanos hablando ingles durante nuestra entrevista y durante toda la plática Claudia no dejo de demostrar lo emocionada que se encuentra.

¿Cómo te sientes de será una de las finalistas de MasterChef y la única latina?

Claudia: Cuando audicione les dije que yo quería ser la primera latina que ganara MasterChef porque nunca ha llegado una latina tan lejos. Me siento tan emocionada que se me eriza la piel de tan solo pensarlo. Que orgullo poder representar nuestra cultura. Nuestra deliciosa comida. Es bonito recibir mensajes todos los días desde niños, niñas, mamas, papas solteros, y de todo el mundo. Me mandan mensajes por todas las redes sociales diciéndome de que los inspiro a regresar a la cocina, sea por mi forma de ser, o sea por la comida.

How are you making sure you keep your Hispanic/Latino culture alive on MasterChef?

Claudia: By bringing up so many of those flavors that I grew up with. Sometimes I may be using techniques that are a little more French or a little more European – however I make sure that I never leave that Hispanic flavor. I bring that fire-y, vivacious Latina flavor in and I am always laughing and having a great time because I think that is so representative of our culture. Were such happy people. We’re such a vibrant part of the community and I am happy to bring that across in the competition as well.

What has been your favorite experience on MasterChef?

Claudia: Being able to win the mystery box episode were exceptionally big for me. It was definitely very exciting for me. Not only was I the first one in this whole season to win a mystery box, but I was able to spend time with the actual champions from the previous seasons and to be able to pick their brains as to what has led them to their success and to be able to spend time with them was invaluable for me.

I know you are from Mazatlán. So, what is your favorite mariscos dish?

Claudia: We’re actually from a little ranch called Barron, which is by the airport. And one of my favorite dishes is Aguachile.

It was fun to talk about “mariscos” on the day of our interview because we both ended up having seafood that evening in our own homes.

Where does your passion for the culinary arts come from?

Claudia: I don’t think it’s something that I’ve discovered recently. I think that I’ve always had a passion for food. I grew up around food. My mom and my grandmother would always cook. I personally believe that my passion comes from my family.

If you were to win as a finalist of MasterChef how would it make you feel?

Claudia: Are you trying to make me cry right now? Lol. That’s an amazing question because I think that this competition has the potentiality of changing me and my daughter’s life. So much so that I think about it often and I always think about the fact that if this was to happen for me and my daughter we would be able to move out of our one-bedroom apartment. We would no longer need to share a bed. She would have her own bedroom and bed. I have struggled so much in life. I left my marriage with absolutely nothing, but what I could fit in a couple of bags and everything that is in my apartment was given to me or sold to me at a very low cost. If I were to win it would be amazing and a blessing.

Is there one ingredient that you do not like to cook with?

Claudia: You know what I am not a fan of higado (liver). All that very iron-rich bloodish stuff. For some reason higado I don’t know. I can’t. Lol

Le deseo a Claudia la mejor de las suertes y le recordé que Dios tiene un plan para todos y que si estaba en el plan de Dios ganaría. Me comento que ella siempre lo dejaba todo en sus manos antes de subir al escenario. ¡Vamos con todo!
