Junior Merino *The Liquid Chef*

Fresh Origins was fortunate enough to meet Junior Merino “The Liquid Chef”, when he and his team of Mixologists exhibited at the Star Chefs Congress in NY last year! We were delighted and intrigued with his innovative, creative, beautiful and tasty cocktails. Since then we’ve formed a great relationship with him and have provided our products for his lab sessions. Here are some of his fabulous recipes and pictures with our MicroGreens and Edible Flowers!

In 2006, Junior Merino created the Liquid Chef as a means of harnessing his talents and knowledge as a mixologist and offer them to the public. The Liquid Chef, Inc. was founded to educate and to show case the artistry and mixability of ingredients and liquors from all over the world. In 2008, Junior Merino added the Liquid Team— a group of highly trained mixologists inspired by his passion.
