a bit more...
I’ve been cooking for a living for fifteen years. I’m self-taught and people often ask me how I got started. Shortly after moving to Washington D.C. from Mexico City, I organized a 3-year long regional culinary program with the Mexican Cultural Institute. I got to meet and cook with such renowned chefs as Susana Trilling, Patricia Quintana and Zarela Martinez and I was hooked!
Gradually, I moved away from my work in marketing and got into cooking, kept learning by perfecting techniques and traveling back to Mexico for research and classes, and continued experimenting with the best ways to merge the authentic with the adventurous.
Teaching and working as a private chef in DC, I am able to share a passion for food and cooking with my clients and students. Washington is my second home and has been a fantastic place for my husband and I to raise our kids. We travel often to Mexico and France to visit family; and whenever possible, to anywhere else our cravings take us.
Nice to meet you / Mucho gusto
