I relish gathering with cooks of all stripes—new to the kitchen, seasoned home cooks, cooks who find joy in nothing more than a weekend baking project to stretch their skills and feast on the fruits of their labor. I teach cooking classes in the Bay Area, my focus on vegetables and Latin American dishes with a California twist. I’m so smitten with veggies that my first cookbook featured vegetarian cooking with tea. Cooking is my gateway into culture. I have an MA in Intercultural Studies and a proud heritage of multihyphenate cultures: Mexican-Bolivian-Dutch American. In a world that can seem so fractured, cooking invites us to consider ingredients we share and how we are connected cross-culturally.
Curious home cooks! If you’re trying to eat more vegetables or a vegetarian who feels like you’re in a cooking rut, check out my eat more meatless classes (& the companion kitchen journal). Looking to spice things up? Join me for one of my Latin American, TexMex, and Mexican cooking classes. I teach regularly at 18 Reasons in San Francisco. I have taught a variety of private classes, team-building experiences and demos virtually, so if that piques your interest, email me at hello at citronpressecreative dot com.
