Sofia, Mexico
Born in Mérida, Sofia delights in preparing local Yucatecan and Mayan dishes that showcase the cultural heritage of the Yucatán Peninsula. She is delighted to teach guests how to make authentic tacos al pastor, a popular and flavorful marinated pork taco served with an avocado sauce. An accomplished home-cook, Sofia learned to cook from her mother and grandmother and says the talent runs in the family. Yucatecan cuisine has been influenced by a variety of cultures, from the indigenous Mayan people, to the Spanish colonizers, to the Dutch and Lebanese who migrated to the region. Sofia prepares traditional Yucatecan dishes such as sopa de lima (a light and refreshing, traditional chicken soup accented with lime), panuchos (black bean filled tostadas), sikil pak con tostadas (traditional dip made from ground pumpkin seeds, served with tortilla chips) and Yucatecan tamales wrapped in banana leaves. Sofia loves sharing her Yucatecan culture through food and conversation and says "I love teaching my guests to cook as each one of them takes a bit of my heart with them but they also leave a bit of theirs!”
