About this pro

How does your service stand out?

My Work stands apart from others because of the Passion and dedication I put into teaching and sharing my knowledge of Spanish and Latin cuisine with others. Not only do I teach you how to cook, I explain the origins of Latin and Spanish cuisine. To me, it's not just about teaching cooking, but passing on the folklore and history of cuisine, not just Spanish but all food History fascinates me so I like to share that with you and your friends.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love every aspect of cooking, I love it so much I thought I'd share my knowledge & enthusiasm with the world. I have been teaching Cooking for 5 years now. I started as a young child falling in love with my mother’s spice rack. My Mother was a mediocre cook, later, I learned that both my maternal Great Grandmothers on both sides owned popular restaurants in Nicaragua. I went to culinary school while I was waiting to get into graduate school for writing. My first gig was teaching Cuban Cuisine to Mexican chefs for the opening of a new Cuban restaurant. I have also teach regularly at Whole Foods- The Grove, Taste of Spain Cooking Class. Being a food historian and adventurer, I love writing about food and always incorporate all my classes with a bit of history and Latin folklore. I know how to cook all kinds of cuisines, from Thai to Middle Eastern, but it is the passion and love of my heritage and my roots that keeps magnetizing me back to Latin cuisine. I am avid traveler, travelling all over Latin America, where I can continue to sample more Latin flavors and learn about this rich culture. Recently, I just came back from Buenos Aires and learned all about the parrilla, Chimmichurri and Choripan, popular Argentinian street food. Always, something new to learn and new to explore and I am ready for the adventure. Please, join me and my blog as I explore more Latin Cuisine and try out new innovative recipes on classic traditional recipes, like, Cardamom Flan and Pumpkin Enchiladas. You can also find me at home at my Underground Restaurant, Sabrina’s Latin Kitchen.

    When Sabrina came to stay with me in the UK over New Year 2009/10 she cooked me the most wonderful chicken and mushroom soup in the coldest winter we had had in the UK for a generation. But not only that, she took me to the supermarket to source all manner nice things to go in it, some of which I hadn't heard of before or had never used. She opened my eyes and broadened my horizons of what is possible in the kitchen. Sabrina not only feeds your tummy, she feeds your mind.

    My husband and I practice a vegan diet. We both love Vegan Paella which is hard to find in vegetarian and Spanish restaurants here and abroad. When I found out that Sabrina combines both Vegan and Spanish Cuisines, I immediately scheduled a culinary class with her. Prior to her arrival we discussed what type of rice, vegetables and spices I should have on hand. Sabrina accompanied me to the Spanish store to purchase the Paella pan as well. Within the first few minutes of ingredients sautéing in the pan, my olfactory and visual senses were awakened with a jolt! The smell and look of the creation in progress got better as the prep continued. I wanted to taste a little bit quite often and had to sneak a spoon into the pan like a sleuth intruder. Sabrina was very patient answering all my questions and injected humor into the class. We laughed and it was a joyous experience all around. As she explained ‘It’s all in the Soffrito’. The Paella was the best I’ve ever eaten and feel confident that I can make it myself. I highly recommend Sabrina’s cooking class for anyone who has a hankering for Spanish food.

    I have hired Sabrina on a number of occasions to cook for me. Each time she cooks she outdoes herself by creating a succulent dish that's unique. Eating her food is a treat. Len Sobil Adverting Professional

    Wow, that's what you call fine dining. That dinner you prepared last week was so amazingly delicious. Your culinary intuition really brought those taste sensations come together nicely. I haven't had a meal like that since I was at a five star restaurant called, The Sky Room. Thank you for making the effort, it was well worth it.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I would look for someone that is nice, fun and that is creative. I would also look for someone with good sanitary skills and knife technique. In addition, if you can find someone with excellent references and testimonials, that says it all. Above anything, that's the best and wisest criteria in which to hire someone. I personally, have great testimonials. The proof is in the pudding- no pun intended.
