What you'll do

Discover Mexican secret foods that exist in your pantry in a trivia challenge followed by a scavenger hunt within your home.

Many of these have been all over the planet for the last five centuries. You will learn of them directly from their native origin & you will be surprised at how many do you actually own.

Be amazed at how Mexico has provided the world with unique foods; animals, insects, fruits, vegetable, colors, grains, plants & flowers that are now owned, used & loved all over.

Join me for a game & let's see how many you can guess & discover in your home.

I will share with you the characteristics of each, one by one, then I will help you guess what it is & afterwards you will tell & show us if you have any at home.

Have fun learning how they were spread everywhere by the Spaniards & are now living inconspicuously around you; some in their original form, some processed & some as their natural descendants.

I am absolutely certain that you will have many of them & some will even surprise you!

You will find many words, in your own mother language, that come from Náhuatl, the original Aztec language from Mexico.

At the end of the game we will have a winner, the one with the largest number of correct answers & items at home.

This person wins "official bragging rights" for having the best knowledge or the largest number of original 'Foods from Mexico for the world.'

I have earned my National Guide License & Hospitality, Food & Marketing Diplomas by the Disney University while my vast expertise from fast food, by opening the first McDonald’s in Mexico, to slow food, by managing the Pueblo Quieto Steak House chain, has put me for decades in contact with local & native producers. All of my curated, online or on-site, experiences showcase the diverse sides of Mexico, from individual presentations to corporate events. First as a hobby & then professionally, I have researched the facts of Mexican history that have been forgotten or left hidden, to help advance the knowledge about Mexico. 500 to 200 years ago, the Viceroyalty of Mexico was equivalent to a world power & many foods & products were strictly exclusive to it. These products have now become of common use all over the world and of my interest.

Carlos is the perfect host - friendly and personable, while also very well-prepared and well-informed on his subject. I learned so much during this experience and left with a much deeper appreciation for and understanding of Mexico and its influence on the world. I joined by myself and had a wonderful time, but also think this experience would be perfect for a group activity among coworkers or friends/family. Carlos has clearly put a lot of thought and effort into crafting his presentation - and it really shows. Don’t miss out on this fun!

We had a fun night with a group of family and friends. Carlos did a nice job of customizing his introduction to a part of Mexico of interest to our group. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Mexican food and its contribution to world culture. The slides and videos he used for the game were well-done and informative. We all learned something new!

Hope to visit you soon after this pandemic is over. Thanks!!
