Your host Melissa
Melissa believes food is a way to share love, a way to learn about someone's culture and to connect with people. She grew up eating traditional Costa Rican food that her mom cooked for them at home. Melissa learned these family recipes from her mother and then perfected them with time. Today she re-creates traditional meals and adds a modern twist to make her own recipes. Melissa is very keen on showcasing the rich culture and heritage of her country through its food and that is why she published her first cookbook: ‘Living Longer, Healthier and Happier - Recipes from Costa Rica’. Her first cook book is a true reflection of her passion.

"We absolutely loved our class with Melissa - the instructions were very clear, and she answered our many, many questions with great good humour. The food was delicious, and we almost felt like we were there in her kitchen, cooking together. "

"We traveled to Costa Rica a few years ago and loved the country and people. Getting to have a cooking class with Melissa during Covid social distancing let us feel and taste those wonderful memories again. We plan on doing many more cooking classes during lockdown. "

"Melissa was a wonderful host and she helped us to make the best ceviche! She was kind and knowledgable and while we wish we could be in Costa Rica taking her class in person, the online format worked very well as an alternative. Highly reccomended. "
