Also knows as “Chef Betty,” she was born, raised and currently resides in the historic port town of San Blas in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico. San Blas is a picturesque, authentic Mexican community with a fascinating history and well known for its quiet atmosphere and surf-ready beaches along with divine dining experiences. As the executive Chef at the El Delfín in the Hotel Garza Canela, 32 years of experience under her belt and a fine education at Le Cordon Blue in France, it’s simple to see why she was able to position herself among the top elite Chefs of Mexico. She likes to invite students, customers and hotel guests to glimpse into her kitchen while she gets creative. Her secret is all about the balance of sweet and spicy, being careful not to overpower the dish with one or the other. She is the Culinary Ambassador for the Riviera Nayarit and Judge of Master Chef Mexico.
