About
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 why she will teach you some traditional Costa Rican dishes that she grew up eating with a modern twist; using local, seasonal and fresh produce. Melissa lives with her husband and their well behaved dog in a beautiful home close to the beach and city center in Jaco.
