In 2013 she studied at the Espai Sucre in Barcelona, and worked at Dos Palillos from chef Albert Raurich. Later on, she worked as an apprentice at the Pierre Hermé bakery in Paris, and then returned to Mexico to reincorporate to the Pujol team.
In In 2017, along with chef Eduardo García, she was the pastry consultant of Grupo Peyote in London, Dubai and Ibiza.
The acknowledgments and recognitions of her trajectory have aided her in getting involved in many other restaurant projects, all of which have helped her to take her business into new directions, while instilled with traditional techniques and while honouring her natural sweetening philosophy, always pursuing the use of the best available products and the perfection in pastry craftsmanship.
Sofía has been crowned Latin America’s Best Pastry Chef by Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants 2020.
