Let me introduce myself
Treat yourself to an unforgettable authentic Mexican culinary experience. Whether a family reunion,a birthday,a wedding or just some relaxed time at your Villa, let me be your private and personal chef while you just kick back and enjoy the sunset.
Besides cooking I also love to surf, yoga, belly dancing arts and learn new languages.
You can hire my services by the day or a week. All the meals are freshly prepared with carefully selected ingredients from local markets. I will not only cook but will also I will share my skills if you are willing to witness my cooking demonstrations.
I am originally from Mexico City but now live in Sayulita, Nayarit. I left Mexico City and moved to the state of Nayarit 15 years ago and lived in other parts of Nayarit as well such as San Blas, Los Cocos and Tepic.
I Always liked to cook and to experiment with new flavors. Ever since I was a kid I loved to cook with my mom, who is a great cook, and learn her secrets. When I moved to Nayarit I started cooking for myself since my mom was not around anymore and start to become more and more experienced with time.
I developed my own style of cooking and created many different dishes inspired by my mom´s cooking, or in recipe books and other influences such as Nayarit local cuisine. I also love to travel and to taste and explore flavors from all over the world.
Wherever I travel I always brings with me cook books, cooking secrets notes, spices and gourmet ingredients from all over the world. Cooking has been my passion since I was a kid and you can taste it in every meal I prepares. Everything I prepare is freshly made and homemade.
“Sofia cooked the most delicious meal for 25 people the night of our Sayulita wedding. The meal was amazing, perfectly timed, and beautiful. Sofia's shining personality was an appreciated accompaniment to the scrumptious food. She was a delight to be around during her meal preparation during the day as well as during the dinner - our guests still mention Sofia when we talk of our wedding night. We are delighted to have met Sofia and will call her every time we return to Sayulita.”

"The best! We just returned from a week in Sayulita and hired Sofia for two dinners and three breakfasts. Her meals were absolutely one of the highlights of our wonderful week. We chose from her menu for breakfasts but let her have free reign at dinner (including cocktails!) and she did not disappoint. Everything was so fresh and delicious, from appetizers to desert. She was easy to work with before arriving and quickly made herself at home in the kitchen so we could sit back and enjoy our vacation. Truly perfect."
“There isn't anything nicer than a dinner prepared by Sofia at your casita, overlooking the ocean. Sofia provided us with menus to pick out something that all of us would like. It was a terrific dinner, the fish with mango salsa, blended perfect with the wonderful atmosphere of Sayulita. The chocolate flan was the perfect ending to a delectable meal. Thank you Sofia for a wonderful and memorable dinner.”
