I create the Innovation Culinary Safari to find a great way to interact between food scientis and culinary. Is key this approche to create synergy between Science and food experience.We create a different trip according each group and the goal to achieve with the experience. We travel to a city and we visit: the local market, grocery’s, supermarkets, restaurants by cathegory, local fairs and producers. We taste flavors, buy ingredients and learn about culture. Then we have a complete workshop. We taste the products more relevant, we cook with them, we explore them and together we create a portfolio of new ideas of products focalize in your company needs. To me the most effective way inspire your innovation and development teams. I know how much can impact them to create more innovative and winner products/ concept for the food industries.

Since long time I been trying to be involve into different private iniciatives, comunal organization, etc. that believe that we can do some “to give back” in life thru food. To me be a “cocinera” chef is not just a honnor, but is also a duty of care with food with the ingredients and the producers. My work is about FEED, people, costumers, family but also souls. So this link will be about that. The different project, initiative that will be part of my agenda and invite you to be part if you want to cooperate too. Or at least to inspire you to “giving back” in you way.
Chef TriniWoman, mother, cook, traveler and nature lover. Committed to good causes and the environment. I am Chilean by birth but I consider the world my place. I have lived in half a dozen countries and thanks to that I have an adventurous palate and good friends around the world. Food is my passion. My curiosity about the ingredients, preparations, recipes, markets and the stories behind each of them, have been the motivation to dedicate myself to the kitchen. I have more than 20 years of culinary experience involved in all kinds of kitchens, laboratories and experimental kitchens dealing with many types of people and personalities. Cooks, engineers, nutritionists, flavorists, housewives, etc. The last 10 years focused as a Chef developing products for the food industry and the QSR for all of Latin America. Through these years I have worked and collaborated with many multinational companies giving the developments that distinctive culinary touch. I have helped to make known the different Latin American cuisines outside our continent in multiple culinary presentations. And I have hosted groups of chefs from around the world in Latin America discovering their wonderful diversity. Currently I have the privilege of living in a small paradise called Costa Rica, from where I am moving to the different countries where my clients are currently. Argentina, Brazil, USA and Spain.
