Edurne Andre Garcia
EDURNE ANDRE was born and raised in a small colonial town in central Mexico called San Miguel de Allende, but it was in Mexico City, where she studied French and Mexican cooking as well as the History and Development of Pre-Hispanic Food and Ingredients, that she developed a passion for Mexican food in particular. She began catering in 1993 while living in Buenos Aires. From there she moved to Bermuda, where she demonstrated Mexican food for charity events while learning more about purchasing for restaurant operations. It was in Vienna, Austria that she began teaching very popular Mexican cooking classes and catered parties including Cinco de Mayo at the Ambassador's Residence. Edurne looks forward to sharing her great love of Mexican cooking with you.
