George Lopez, owner and chef of Baby Bolo’z, has led a colorful life, always circling back to food as a key to his happiness. A first generation Cuban-American, Lopez’s passion for cooking was ignited by his father, an excellent chef who loved to share his delicious meals with everyone. For Lopez, watching his father create in the kitchen was “like magic”. He was also greatly influenced by his grandmother, and continues her tradition of using only natural ingredients, no salt, time, patience and plenty of love. Growing up in NJ, Lopez’s first job at 14 was working in an Italian deli, where he fell in love with the art of food. Wanting to expand his knowledge and create his own flare cuisine, Lopez worked in restaurants from New Jersey down to Florida, from the East Coast to the West, creating flavor-packed, all-natural meals that earned him recognition among entertainment stars and body builders.
After 40 years, he is still happiest when he’s in the kitchen, creating his own brand of magic. Settled in Greensboro for over 10 years now, he brings his all-natural, salt-free marinades and salsas to the Triad.
