About Taino’s: Taino’s Puerto Rican Food was a 40th birthday present from Owner Lisa Callaghan to herself. Armed with a passion to cook and desire to share the hidden treasure of Puerto Rican food with Northern California, Lisa first brought Taino’s to the masses with help from the Women’s Initiative at La Cocina’s 2011 Street Food Festival. Building upon her Puerto Rican Grandma’s traditional recipes, she served up almost 1,000 pastelillos (empanadas) to a hungry crowd. This year, Lisa was accepted into La Cocina’s kitchen incubator program, where she’s looking forward to not only joining the festival again but growing her catering and food truck business.
