Yuliet was born in Cuba and grew up in Miami, FL. As a kid watching reruns of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations, she developed an obsession with food and travel. In one of her trips abroad, she got stuck in a very tiny alley inside an equally tiny car and had to crawl out of the sunroof to freedom. Pro tip - if the road looks too narrow, it probably is. When not traveling or eating, she still enjoys Anthony Bourdain reruns and binge-watching historical dramas.
