Bathsheba from Costa Rica Catering
Bathsheba, owner and chef of Costa Rica Catering, lives and works in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Everything she touches and anything that comes out of her kitchen is wonderful! My personal favorites include her panko crusted Mahi Mahi and her vanilla, passionfruit cake with butter-cream icing…okay, I’m drooling! 🙂
- What do you do? I put people in happy, blissful, food comas.
- Where are you from? Anywhere you want me to be from, but mostly India.
- Who are you in 5 words? I am obsessed with food.
- What is your style? Classic, conservative, bordering on the ridiculous.
- What is your favorite part of a wedding? Why? I like when everybody gets really drunk, with joy, and jumps, fully clothed, in the pool.
- What do you find to be the most memorable about a wedding? I always manage a quick peek, through the kitchen smoke and the flames, at the bride as she emerges to join the wedding party, and it’s a very special moment, no matter how many times you witness it…
- What is a tip you would like to give brides and grooms about weddings? Just to relax, and let Kristina take care of the details..she’s a professional! To remember to have fun, and oh yeah, enjoy the food!!!!
- In a few sentences, as to not bore us 🙂 , what brought you to Costa Rica? I stuck a thumb tack in the map of the world.
- What is your favorite place in Costa Rica. Why? No matter where we travel to in CR, and how short our time away might’ve been, I am happiest driving back into Tamarindo, in excited and slightly fearful anticipation of being lovingly ( ! ) mauled by my excited and uncontainable dogs, whom I’ve missed so much!
- What do you love about your line of work? I love painstakingly building a beautiful plate of food, or spending many stressful hours baking and decorating a cake and watching people demolish it till they are scraping their plates clean in an effort to consume every last morsel, and being able to make a living from it!! ( Sorry, was I supposed to be brief?? )
- Tell me something, anything. Life gets interesting when you have no sense of direction.
