Cooking in Costa Rica

My Story

My name is Sibyl, I am a formally trained German chef since 1987.


When I came first in 1993 to Costa Rica,I had not the least idea that this country would become my new home.

On my first visit, a friend and I traveled 3 weeks through Costa Rica and were fascinated of it's nature, beauty

and the kindness of the locals.


I came back in 1997 and in this occasion, I met Jochen, a German, who lived here

in Playa Junquillal since 1979.

To make it short: we felt in love and I stayed, leaving my past, family, friends and last not least,

my own restaurant in Hamburg, which I had opened together with 2 partners in 1989.
