Chef Rolando Gonazalez shares an unlikely inspiration when explaining how he went from great private cook to the chef-owner of his own Cuban restaurant, Casa Don Rolando in North Hills. “I always say that it was Jennifer Lopez who made me a chef,” Gonzalez admits about the Selena star who helped him open Madre’s in Pasadena after cooking in her kitchen.
