After many years of dedicating her life to social service Maylin Navarro decided to pursue her other passion -FOOD! “Food is the universal language -we gather around the table, share, laugh, debate, and affect change through the way we eat.” Maylin took her culinary skills to the next level and enrolled at the International Culinary Art Institute of San Diego where she was classically trained and graduated with highest honors. Maylin continued her training and began working under one of San Diego’s most creative and prominent Chefs, Andrew Spurgin and founded her personal chef and catering company S.o.L., sustainable. organic. local in 2010. S.o.L specializes in vegetarian, fish and seafood and sources ingredients from local farmers and purveyors while adding Maylin’s Latin flavors to each dish. Over the years, Maylin has participated in several charitable events including Baja Bash, March of Dimes, San Diego Public Market Street Food Event, Olivewood Gardens Seedling Soiree, Maritime Gala, Collaboration Kitchen, and the Sustainable Seafood Gala, among others. Today, Maylin continues to be inspired by her travels, and her love of local, seasonal ingredients and is committed to giving back to her community and be an advocate for sustainable practices.
Chef Maylin offers two hands-on culinary experiences, 3.5 hours each, during which you will enjoy preparing your own meal along with fellow cooks. Classes take place at La Cocina Que Canta, our culinary center.
