What you'll do

What we’ll do: We’ll start with a tour of the famous San Juan Market in the Historic Center of Mexico City where you’ll be introduced to a variety of colorful market products, including exotic meats, edible insects, aromatic spices, and sweets. We’ll chat with shop owners, sample some of their products, and select all of the ingredients for the evening meal. We’ll then return to my nearby home where I will prepare a three-course meal. You will have the opportunity to choose one out of three menus: 1) The Adventuroso, featuring edible insects, such as escamole and chapulin 2) Del Mar, a seafood based plan, or 3) La Tierra, which focuses on the vast array of Mexican meats. I will explain the cooking process for each course and provide each guest with a copy of my recipes. Meanwhile…while I prepare the main course, guests will have the opportunity to try three distinct types of Oaxacan mezcal with a brief presentation by my assistant about the process of making mezcal and its cultural significance. You’ll end the tour with a richer understanding of Mexican cuisine and a full belly!

I studied culinary arts at the renowned Le Cordon Bleu International Culinary School and have worked as a professional chef in Mexico City for over seven years. I’m very passionate about Mexican cuisine and love to share my knowledge of traditional approaches, modern fusion, as well as regional variations. I’ve also had the opportunity to travel as a private chef in a yacht across the Gulf, where I discovered flavors of the sea, and have spent time in Oaxaca exploring the secrets of Oaxaqueno cuisine.
