⭐TOP 5⭐ Expereince CDMX

~ First stop, fresh market for ingredients.
~ Next, hands-on instruction and taste-testing accompanied by all the agua de Jamaica (hibiscus tea) you can handle.
~ Once Salsas are made, together we Cook & Eat Quesadillas (as many as you want to eat)
~ Final touch because we know our audience: take home fresh leftovers!

We will meet at an ancient church located at the heart of Tacuba; which history goes way back before the spanish arrived to America. Steps away is the Tacuba Market where we will buy the fresh ingredients to cook our delicious variety of mexican salsas.

Then we will head to my place, 300 mts from the market and will get right to business. We will cook the salsas in the four traditional ways: raw, fried, boiled and roasted. All different in personality, flavor, chile and spicy level. You will be surprised how easy it is to cook salsa, at the same time we will prepare some quesadillas to eat with our salsas. Unlimited jamaica water included.

At the end you will leave with a jar of salsa and new recepies to take home!

When booking this experience you also support the local commerce.

Please consider experience can be held in more than one language simultaneously.

If you prefer different time or day, we can arrange it!

I am a mexican cook with a life time passion for food, specially hot & spicy. I have had the opportunity to live around Mexico from north to south, coast to coast, always cooking with & for local & foreign palates, that is how I learned most of my recepies. As well as studies at the National School of Mexican Gastronomy. I love cooking at home & sharing a great meal.

I believe food brings people together & it goes beyond langages.

"When traveling, always visit, the local market, its where you find the real flavor & culture, is an opportunity to interact with locals & an excuse for amazing pitures!" Anthony Bourdain

If you're in CDMX and have time one morning, do this. Natalia is wonderful, the food is delicious, and it allows you to see parts of the city you may not otherwise visit. Walking through the market with Natalia was one of the best parts and was a different and better experience than when we walked through markets on our own previously. There is a reason this is so highly rated!

What a wonderful experience! We made 5 different salsas and they were all absolutely delicious. The preparation and cooking processes were so much fun and informative, and ending the night with Jamaica and quesadillas to eat with our salsas was so perfect. Don’t miss out on this beautiful, local experience!

If you enjoy cooking and seeing different cultures this activity is for you. The activity starts with a trip to the local market to select ingredients which is an eye opening experience into local life in Mexico City. The class itself was very enjoyable, Natalia is incredibly knowledgeable. She delivers an excellent lesson through her sweet and outgoing nature. You will have the ability to take some salsa home with you and access to the ingredients and directions to make them at home. There is a reason this is one the top voted activities in Mexico City!
