Hola! My name is Alejandra Schrader.

I am a passionate cook! From my kitchen, I like to ‘travel’ the world while preparing tasty, fresh, and nutritious meals from different cultures. I am fascinated by unique and authentic ingredients and enjoy creating bold flavors and eclectic recipes.

For the last year, I have been writing a cook book: “Cook Global. Eat at Home!”, where I encourage readers to bring the world to their kitchen; it’s about global cuisine with a light twist. During this journey and while I test recipes, I also share some of my recipes, tricks, and ideas through this blog.

I was a Top 10 finalist in FOX’s popular show “MasterChef” with Gordon Ramsay, Graham Elliot, and Joe Bastianich. Check out my FOX Bio and Fan Page

If you’d like to learn more about me, current projects, and more, feel free to check out my personal website.

Thanks for checking me out!

Keep smiling, get happy, and ADIOS!

  6. Hey Alejandra!

    You are my favorite contestant in Masterchef. I’d love to see you win the contest. It would be great if you can post more vegetarian recipes or give an option as to how a dish can be made with veggies. I love to cook too, but my skills are limited and I cook only veggie dishes..


  7. This sounds amazing, I will have to try it soon. I was so inspired by your cooking on masterchef. What happened to the fava been pilaf?

  8. Can you please forward the recipe for the curry chicken salad you were sampling at Whole Foods on Wednesday (2/18)? I’m not a good cook but it seemed like something I could handle (hopefully). It was delicious.
