A Mestizo Culture

Chamorro is the culture of Guam, a Micronesian Island that is also a territory of the United States.

Known as a Mestizo culture blending Pacific Island indigenous roots and Spanish colonialism, Chamorros enjoy a rich lifestyle that includes a life surrounded by the serene waters of the Pacific as well as savory cuisine using citrus, chili peppers, barbecue meats and fish, rice, noodles and plenty of fresh vegetables.

As a Chamorro, I am so pleased to collaborate with my family to present "Simply Chamorro"—easy and flavorful recipes of the culture that defines me.
