“Every time a person tastes something that they really like,” Chef Aquino said. “There is a story that follows it. You can learn a lot about a person and their culture through food.”

This curiosity drives Aquino and his team in the Wheatley Farms kitchen, as they prepare a wide range of delicious dishes.
