Miguel David—or Migz, as he is lovingly called, picked up baking during the pandemic, as most did. But he stood out. He ventured into olive oil cakes, something he had never done or even had before. Without knowing how it would turn out, he dove headfirst, and found himself swimming in success.
Gourmigz At Home is his online business that was born because he loved to make food, and he loved feeding people. He wanted his food in people’s bellies, and in their hearts. His kitchen, after all, is filled with love, using only the freshest ingredients, and supporting local businesses and markets.
