About Raphael Antonio Nazario

Raphael, nee, Rafael Antonio Nazario (also Raf) is a Sydney-based writer who has had a multi-pronged career in music (pianist-composer, singer-songwriter, teacher), the thespian and culinary arts.  His bilingual cookbook, ‘Sand in Your Shoes’ (℗ 2001, revised edition released 2020) which he wrote during his years in Mexico earned Raphael an invitation to prepare a gala meal with his crew at the James Beard House in NYC (2004).

During his sojourn in Mexico, he regularly wrote for In & Out as well as Vallarta Voice magazines (both defunct). He also contributed to the NY-based Details Magazine (also gone).

Rafael still finds time for music with 10 CDs —albums and singles— in release.
