Her passion for gastronomy led her to earn a bachelors degree in Mexican cuisine, another in international cuisine, and a Master’s degree in history focused on Mexican culinary history. She now teaches gastronomic history at local universities. When she’s not working, she is most often found in the kitchen, cooking the recipes she learned from her mother and grandmother, and from her husband’s family, who hail from the Yucatan. A welcoming host, Lucía loves to share Mexican gastronomic history and tell her guests about her memories growing up in the kitchen and her favorite cooking secrets. Lucía can cook a wide variety of Mexican dishes, from traditional family recipes passed down through generations of home cooks, to modern dishes using fresh, local ingredients.
