Chef Dania Fallas Zúñiga

Get to know me better

I take inspiration from all areas of life and transform it into a full-on culinary experience, infusing each bite with love and passion.

I did not choose a culinary career, I surrendered to it. After going through college and a very different career, I had an adventure that changed my life: working at Brandywine Restaurant in the BVI. I came back home and immediately decided to go to culinary school. I completed my studies, with honors, from Universidad Politécnica de Costa Rica. After graduating I worked as an Executive Chef in several restaurants, designing menus based on seasonal, local and sustainable ingredients. We are very lucky here in Costa Rica to be able to create an entire menu made from what is growing all around us! I have also studied the art of baking, with a specific focus on French pastries. I love to bake for my clients and have mastered this fine art within a very challenging (tropical) environment. Let me show you that it CAN be done, and it will be delicious!

More about me

For me, cooking is...

Life, love and destiny

I learned to cook at...

Everywhere and from everyone! In this business you never stop learning!

A role model in the kitchen is...

I am inspired and amazed by the pastries of Antonio Bachour, the creative genius of Chef Wuttisak, and the all-around awesomeness of Alton Brown.

A cooking secret...

Love and respect: For the produce, for the process, for the guest, for oneself.
