Paolo Española is a wandering diner in search of a good meal and an ever-elusive identity. His first real forays into food took place during a soul-crushing stint as an accountant beginning with a food blog that featured recipes, personal essays, and things he’s eaten on his travels. This expanded into Hidden Apron, his side project that dabbles into everything from catering and pop-up dinners, to podcasting and things in between. He is also a contributing author to the best-selling cookbook, “The New Filipino Kitchen” and his writing appears in Thrillist, The Counter, and Atlas Obscura. He believes that food is a universal language that can solve the world’s most challenging problems, help people believe in their own potential, create communities with shared stories, and realize that in breaking bread, we break boundaries.
