Patricia CartinPatricia Cartin knows of which she cooks. A native Costa Rican, she immigrated to the United States in 2007, experiencing the flavors of the South, Southwest, and New England before settling in New York, where she attended the International Culinary Center. She now shares these cooking and baking techniques with her own students in the many workshops she leads, including 'Tapas from Spain', 'Costa Rican Food at Home', 'Just Finger Food', 'Latin American Food' and 'Amazing Cakes'.

Patricia has cooked for the President of Costa Rica at university receptions, and caters for the Permanent Mission of Costa Rica to the United Nations. She travels extensively, visiting and tasting with family members living throughout Latin America. These experiences allow Patricia to hone her knowledge of the unique ingredients and flavors found in each Latin American nation.

Patricia lives in King's Point, New York.
