For the past 7 years, I have focused mostly on Caribbean cuisine which incorporates an array of fresh ingredients such as seafood, and exotic fruits and spices. My past clients have loved the fresh and unique flavors of this cuisine, especially on how fun it is to prepare! For a limited time offer, I'm offering free consultations for either perspective clients looking to hire a full or part-time chef or for clients looking to learn this versatile cuisine either just for themselves, or while hosting an event or dinner party. Cocina de Milagros only uses certified organic and local ingredients with the exception of our Caribbean ingredients. Our Cocina provides regular scheduled at-home meal preparation and catering for small residential events. The rates are reasonable, and we can either bring prepped food to your home or do the preparing there. We also offer personal one-on-one cooking instruction for individuals or for people looking to host a unique event where each guest has a chance to participate in the preparation and learn about Caribbean cuisine firsthand. If you're not familiar with Caribbean cuisine, or are interested in a sampling of what our menu offers, then we would love to hear from you! We take very seriously our client's food restrictions, allergies and any other dietary concerns. Almost anything in our menu library can be substituted for one thing or another.

About

I cook organic meals for busy working professionals and families in San Francisco and Marin County who want delicious, healthy, and convenient food but don't have time to spend shopping or cooking and don't want to keep relying on fattening takeout food. Because I prepare meals for them, they can spend their free time outside of work with friends and family instead of worrying about getting dinner on the table. My food is filling and nourishing without being heavy; I use local and organic ingredients with a particular emphasis on seasonal vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and fresh herbs and spices, and I'm very open to clients' requests for special favorite dishes. I'm a classically trained chef with a special interest in Californian, Mediterranean, and North African cuisines.
