PopritkinFamily-105Fluent in English and Spanish, I’m a Cuban-American writer with a passion for food, wine, and travel. The Whet Palette focuses mostly on the Miami-Dade and Broward County area, but nothing is off limits. Dining at Michelin-starred restaurants in New York City and nibbling on pastelitos in Hialeah are all part of my canvas.

I also have an extensive background in interior design, dance, and autism advocacy.

It’s been a colorful journey!   

Life, as I know it, is my palette.
