Martha Ortiz

Martha is an intensely passionate chef – a woman for whom the natural harvest and iconic culture of her native Mexico are unending inspiration.

When she plans her menus, the folklore and future of Mexico dance together in her mind. When she cooks, she is sensuality. When she plates, an artist spirit moves her hands. And when she writes or talks about Mexico’s gastronomy, her voice is brightly proud. Her Mexico City restaurant, Dulce Patria, is lionised. In everything she originates, her love of fantasy twists tradition into new forms.
