Chef Ale's passion for cooking started when she was 6 years old and some of her dishes use family recipes she learned many years ago. She thinks it is magical to transform ingredients on dishes, desserts, art, wine, chocolates, etc!!!
Chef Ale is originally from Morelia in Mexico where she received her gastronomy degree from “Colegio Superior de Gastronomía” in Mexico City. She studied French pastries in Paris at the famous Le Cordon Bleu.
Chef Ale worked at “Salon de te Meert” in Lille France as a chef chocolatiere. She also has been Executive Chef for “Hyatt International”, Catering Chef for “Cantabria” in Mexico, Pastry Chef at “JOEL” (French-Asiatic restaurant) and Chef Instructor (teaching cuisine across cultures) in Le Cordon Bleu Atlanta.
