GF Ambassadors


Héctor Daniel Sánchez Hernández

From a very young age, this passion about Gastronomy started with our Internship and professional experience program in conjunction with his University, La Concordia in Aguascalientes. Despite his initial fear and the uncertainty he faced when starting his adventure, in 2018 he had the opportunity to live a unique experience in the South of France near Nimes thanks to Gastronomie France. He fell in love with French culture so much that he decided not to leave his dream behind, so he reapplied again with GF in 2019. Currently, in 2023, he is in France with the goal of continuing to learn from all his kitchen team and continue to grow in his career. A story that began as an intern, that has now become a Commis of Cuisine and that his ultimate goal is to become a Chef!
