My name is Belén, an Argentinean Mom full of passion!
I have loved food and deco since I was a child. My mom is an amazing chef and eating at home was about fresh and delicious meals, but it was also about setting the table with beautiful plates, silverware, candles, flowers... It was the perfect combination of objects and tasty food!.
Moved into a new city, while exploring the Southern culture, Atlanta felt like the right place to pursue my entrepreneur dream. Definitely, every step along the way got me here! It was time to start my own business: I am giving cooking classes, pastry catering, special events like empanada night, risotto night, and much more!

My love and passion for cooking started at a young age. I can remember being in the
kitchen with my grandma (a.k.a. nanny) ever since I could walk. I loved helping her make
breakfast in particular. The sizzle of bacon, the bubbling grits, and the fluffy pancakes made my
morning that much more special. As I grew up, I continued to cook at home with my mom and
dad. From my dad I learned how to grill and smoke meats, and from my mom I gained a love and
appreciation for international cuisine. Some of my fondest memories are going to the Dekalb
Farmers Market to explore new produce, spices, cheeses, meats, and products. I was also
fortunate enough to be able to travel and eat at very good restaurants. In those restaurants I
learned just how much dedication and passion can go into food. I learned that food does not have
to be just one way or another, the chef’s own artistic expression can be put into food. Cooking
for me is a connection to very special memories. It’s also constantly evolving for me, and I’m
excited for what the future holds. I’ve taken this passion to the next level by attending Sullivan
University for my degree in Culinary Arts. I am constantly eager for new opportunities to learn
Tanghetto was created by a concept and idea of Max Masri. It began being a study
project that was taking identity towards the year 2002. Soon Diego San Velázquez
joined him. This is how the debut album "Emigrante" was composed, inspired by the
crisis that was experienced in Argentina at that time. The addition of the word
"electrotango" warned that the content of the album was somewhat removed from
the traditional tango. With the passage of time, the term "electrotango", used for the
first time to refer to the music of Tanghetto, was used to baptize an entire musical
movement that emerged in those years.
