Welcome to Casa Linnea

​Casa Linnea is home to a unique culinary experience. Linnea is more than just a lover of food, she is inspired by the dining experience, capturing the spirit of the table, creating a mood, and evoking feelings or places through her delicate and perfectly paired meals. 

Whether for sunset cocktails with a spectacular view, dining at the long table, or cooking classes with Linnea herself, guests are sure to enjoy every moment within the walls of Casa Linnea.

"Come for the magic.

Be enchanted."

Linnea is a chef from Connecticut. She brings a lifelong passion to her work and more than 25 years of experience in the hospitality field.

"When I was five, I spent a lot of time with my Italian grandmother, Noni. My Noni made the most beautiful food. It was almost like a dance watching her cook. Because of her, I fell in love with food." Linnea says. 

Later, Linnea went on to design and restore two historic inns, coordinating events and working as the executive chef. She worked in Manhattan with Jean Georges-Vongerichten at the Mercer Kitchen and other accomplished chefs such as Jacque Pepin and Dorie Greenspan. Additionally, she has been published in the New York Times, National Geographic, Yankee Magazine, Gala Magazine, Grace Ormond Wedding Style, the Huffington Post, and Zagat. Friends and clients lovingly named her the Tinkerbell of hospitality.

Years later, after a spontaneous trip to San Miguel de Allende on the recommendation of one of her clients, she felt the magic and realized she had found a new home. Within a month a house found her and she knew she was destined to create more magic. 

Are you ready for the magic?

 

Visually as delicious as the food!

Linnea's meal(s) - we had two: one exceptional dinner plus an amazing lunch with our cooking class - were extraordinary, but so is the space and the atmosphere she has created there. The view of SMA from her multi-level home and perfectly manicured yard is outstanding. She is warm and delightful, serving as an exceptional host to one of the most beautiful places on earth. She hosted our rehearsal dinner the night before our wedding and many of our guests took her class the day after the wedding. We highly recommend her for intimate events and for the cooking class!
