Native Costa Rican Camille Ratton spent her childhood among the coffee plantations of Tres Ríos, starting a lifelong love affair with her country's most famous export. Her passion for coffee and gastronomy led her to study at the Cordon Bleu and then complete a Master's degree in restaurant administration in France.
Chef Ratton's professional training and personal background are brought together in perfection in The Coffee Cookbook (La Cocina del Café). This bilingual cookbook, nominated for a prestigious Gourmand World Cookbook Award in the Single Subject category, is essential for any coffee lover.
The recipes created by Chef Ratton include appetizers, main dishes, desserts, and drinks, each uniquely designed to highlight the qualities of coffee as an ingredient. The book also offers a primer for those eager to learn more, with topics such as coffee tasting and methods of preparation.
