Truffle Shuffle Chef Instructor
Born in San Diego, California and raised in Tijuana, Mexico, Chef Alejandro Toscano’s fascination with cooking began on a family vacation in Cancún, where he first tasted a dish with three different preparations of lobster.
He was stunned by the possibilities of cooking, an infatuation that was only heightened after returning to San Diego at the age of 11 and getting American cable for the first time. It was then that Alejandro discovered the wonders of The Food Network, and chefs like Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis inspired his path to The California Culinary Academy. Since graduating, he’s worked at some of the Bay Area’s top restaurants, including San Francisco institution Jardinière and Michelin-starred The Progress & State Bird Provisions. Alejandro loves sharing his passion for cooking with his Truffle Shuffle guests in the hopes that they learn that it’s simple—and fun!—to create amazing meals in their own home.
