Currently Lisa is a freelance writer, translator and Spanish teacher. Lisa also enjoys giving lectures on Spanish cuisine and culture at local universities.

We love eating! We especially love Spanish food, wines and entertaining, of course. Like most Spanish families, whenever there is a celebration, there is plenty of food! We may live in California, but we cook Spanish. We entertain a lot and often prepare typical Spanish meals to share with friends and family. Everyone knows that when they are invited to the Sierra's, they are not going to go home hungry - and it is going to be a lot of fun!
We hope that our passion for Spanish food and fun is contagious and that you become a regular visitor to the Spanish Food site on About. Buen Provecho!
