Born and raised in Mexico City, Yimnah studied Gastronomy at Universidad Internacional de Profesiones. After completing her studies, she did an internship at the Hotel Hesperia Madrid in Spain for six months.
From an early age, Yimnah fell in love with traditional Mexican cuisine. This inspiration came from her grandmother, now in her late 90s, who taught her how to cook from the age of six. Because of this experience, Yimnah loves spending time in the kitchen and thinks of cooking as one of the most powerful expressions of love.
Aside from doing tours for Eat Mexico, Yimnah teaches mexican cooking to small groups and also runs a side project of producing and selling her own artisanal jams and spices, all made entirely with local Mexican products. Her goal is to rescue and promote the use of fruits, herbs and spices that many of Mexico’s ancestors used to use.
Favorite street food: Quesadillas and everything made with masa and a spicy salsa.
Favorite thing about Mexico City: That I feel I can never finish getting to know my city. There is always something new and surprising to discover.
