Get to know me better
Food and travel are my greatest pleasures
My husband and I moved to Playa Tamarindo 31 years ago. We had a pop up small plates restaurant Platitos before we opened the Sunset Lounge with a revolving menu of recipes from around the world. 13 years ago we started Sunset Catering offering concierge service, private dinners for families visiting Guanacaste, and catering weddings and other special events in our beautiful beachfront garden at Casa Los Olivos.
For me, cooking is...
The most enjoyable part of life
I learned to cook at...
I learned to cook in Berkeley. Lived in New York for 10 years and worked for some of the best catering companies. Took courses in Mexico and Europe.
A role model in the kitchen is...
