Cosme’s memories of his childhood’s flavors remain his inspiration as he brings New Yorkers a taste of home-cooked Chiapas meal.
Cosme came to the US in 1998. He began working at a French restaurant as a porter before being given the opportunity to work in the kitchen. There he began his education in French cuisine, a discipline he dedicated the next decade of his life to. During his spare time he worked with various chefs, honing his skills in French cuisine.
In 2004, Cosme began working with Winston Kulok as chef of Cafe Henri. In November 2009 he became executive chef of Bar Henri.
Cosme was hesitant at first, as his professional experience was with French cuisine, but ultimately agreed as it represented an opportunity to reconnect with the flavors and ingredients of his childhood.
