Chef Tania’s cooking is among those that thrived during the pandemic. In fact, the journey of Cocina Estefania is rooted in her online food delivery services, including Mamita’s Ensaymada and Cheese Rolls and Matey’s Gourmet Kitchen! This success led to a partnership with Chef Rock Dauden of Rock’s Deli, initially serving their Spanish favorites online. Eventually, the pair expanded their offerings to include Filipino dishes.
