Get to know me better
The maximum satisfaction is when guests "lick their fingers" of your food. I search the fusion between natural, healthy, gourmet, local and perfectio
As a child I learned to cook at home, with my mother who was a experienced chef, I started as a chef assistant in 1998 and 6 months later, I was in charge of a restaurant. In 2002 I studied for 3 years at the National Institute of Learning INA of Costa Rica and I am graduated as Hotel Chef. I am certified CEC Certified Executive Chef. I traveled to the coastal regions (Guanacaste and La Fortuna) of Costa Rica and worked for 8 years in most of the country's 5-star hotels, learning various culinary techniques and experience in costs control, recipe standard and leadership with personnel in charge. I am currently the Food and Beverage Manager in a hotel group and in my time off, I do private chef services. I love cooking and want to people taste the native ingredients of Costa Rica transformed into gourmet dishes with international techniques.
