Mexican chef Daniela Soto-Innes was named The World's Best Female Chef 2019. She runs Cosme, a Mexican restaurant she opened with Enrique Olvera in New York and which was named as the best 23rd restaurant in the world, making it the best-ranked restaurant in the U.S.

Yesterday, the Mexican chef sent a message to Donald Trump, who has launched rants against migrants, especially Mexican migrants:



What up Trump immigrants rule I guess America’s favorite food is Mexican

A post shared by Daniela Soto-Innes (@danielasotoinnes) on

Soto-Innes is known for giving opportunities to mostly immigrant cooks ranging in age from 20 to 65, who she says would otherwise likely be driving taxis and working in laundromats. She thrives on empowering her staff and treating every personality differently and says her relative youth is something to embrace rather than feel ashamed of. In an industry dominated by men, she also runs a kitchen that is two-thirds made up by women.

In 2016, she won a Rising Star Award from the prestigious James Beard Foundation. At just 28, she is the youngest winner of The World’s Best Female Chef Award.
