About Dr. Falquier
Sabrina A. Falquier Montgrain, MD, CCMS
Dr. Falquier (Fall-Key-A) is a board certified internal medicine and culinary medicine physician. She is bilingual and multicultural, born and raised in Mexico City to Swiss and American parents. This unique multilingual and multicultural perspective has shaped her work tremendously, as she has seen and experienced that our unique backgrounds, culture, taste, cultural experiences and historic expectations shape our health tremendously. Dr. Falquier worked as a primary care doctor for a prestigious multi-specialty group in San Diego, California, for over 15 years. In 2016 she began incorporating culinary medicine into her practice and the community and in 2020 founded Sensations Salud, LLC which focuses on awakening the senses around ingredient acquisition and food preparation while empowering people to better health through nutritional knowledge and culinary literacy. Dr. Falquier is highly involved with Olivewood Gardens and Learning Center in National City, California. A non-profit organization that empowers all age groups through gardening, nutrition and culinary literacy. She acts as their consulting physician and has been on their board of directors since 2017. Her work there can now be seen through the powerful documentary: The Kitchenistas which released in March 2021. She is also on the advisory board for the Culinary Medicine Specialist Board, focusing on permeating culinary medicine into medical schools, health systems and the community. She is also voluntary clinical professor at the Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science, UC San Diego Health Sciences. Dr. Falquier promotes culinary medicine throughout San Diego and internationally in a variety of ways and to varied age groups and audiences including: hands-on cooking events, cooking demonstrations, both live and virtual, animated speaking engagements, expert panels, recipe development, recipe modifications for optimization of health, and active social media presence.
