Yosmar Monique Martinez is a cookbook author and culinary instructor who believes everyone has the gift to create a memorable meal. All that is needed is a bit of guidance, good ingredients, and an openness to new culinary experiences. From an early age, Yosmar had an inherent culinary curiosity always concocting something new in the kitchen. This curiosity was amplified by the fact that, by the time she was nine years old, she had lived in four countries and thus was exposed to many different cuisines. As a young adult, she developed an appreciation and passion for heirloom ingredients and artisanal food. She then moved to Paris to attend the renowned culinary school Le Cordon Bleu. While in Paris, she had an opportunity to do an internship at Pierre Hermé Paris, one of the most innovative and exquisite pastry shops in the world. She has walked the Camino de Santiago four times and is very active in the pilgrim community in the United States. She currently resides in Miami Beach, FL where she teaches private cooking classes.
