Chef Gonzalo Gonzalez Guzman
Gonzalo Gonzalez Guzman is the chef/partner of Nopalito in San Francisco, California, and author of James Beard Award-winning “Nopalito – A Mexican Kitchen”. Nopalito is a vibrant neighborhood Mexican kitchen, celebrating the traditional cookery of Mexico and utilizing a philosophy of purchasing local, organic, and sustainable ingredients.
Gonzalo was born in a small village in Veracruz, Mexico. He grew up working in the fields, cooking with his mother and helping support his family from a very young age. When Gonzalo was 14, he came to San Francisco to pursue a career in cooking. After working in renowned San Francisco restaurants for over a decade, Gonzalo opened Nopalito on Broderick in 2009 with partners Allyson Jossel, Jeff Hanak, and Laurence Jossel. In 2011, Nopalito established a full-service catering department specializing in sustainably sourced Mexican corporate lunches and festive weddings. In 2020, Nopalito opened a to-go window at Dolores Park. Aside from running two restaurants and a full-service catering program, Gonzalo regularly teaches cooking classes at San Francisco Cooking School.
For his Grupo Soap del Corazón Dinner on July 9th, Chef Guzman and his team will partner with Red River Market to engage area organic farms for locally sourced foods.
