Our dishes are created and crafted by Chef, Gabe Madrid. Chef Gabe studied under some of the most talented Chef's in the country. Born and raised in New Mexico, Chef Gabe's childhood was filled with family, cooking and a strong work ethic, which ultimately steered him to pursue a career in the Culinary Arts.
After graduating from the Scottsdale Culinary Institute with honors in July 2002, his new found passion led him to work for none other than Chef Bobby Flay at his Mesa Grill restaurants in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Bahamas, and Manhattan, New York as his Executive Sous Chef. After spending five years with Bobby Flay, Chef Gabe accepted an Executive Sous Chef position with Carmine's NYC, a New York based restaurant with locations in Times Square, the Upper West Side, and Washington, D.C. where he managed numerous private events and off-site catering to members of Capitol Hill and others within Washington's political scene.
In 2011, Chef Gabe moved back to Las Vegas, Nevada and became the Sous Chef for Chef José Andrés and spent the next year working in his Jaleo restaurant. In 2013, Chef Gabe packed up and moved to Phoenix where he became the Chef for the San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs Spring Training Facility. The following year, Chef Gabe became the Culinary Lead for M Culinary Concepts, which focuses on catering events from intimate social gatherings to large events such as the PGA Tour Waste Management Open and Barrett-Jackson Automobile auction. Upon leaving M Culinary Concepts, Chef Gabe worked as a Personal Chef and Caterer in various cities such as Las Vegas, Albuquerque, Las Cruces and Phoenix.
After working for many esteemed Chefs and gaining a vault of culinary knowledge, Chef Gabe purchased his own food truck and began serving cities across the valley. His bold New Mexican flavors quickly gained recognition and won multiple awards. In addition to serving delicious New Mexican inspired dishes from his food truck, he is also the Executive Chef at Tucked Away Craft Kitchen and Bar located in Mesa, Arizona.
During the pandemic when the world was shut down, Chef Gabe's created the "gaby baby burrito". This was his way of bringing amazing food made with high quality ingredients, but what he didn't know was they were going to take the Phoenix area by storm!
