What you'll do
~ 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! Also Host Mexican Burritos, Breakfast, Ceviche Experience!

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!"

Where you'll be
Tacuba is an ancient neighborhood with history that can be track back to the first civilizations in America, way before the Spanish Conquest. Few blocks from my home is located the famous "Árbol de la Noche Triste" where rumor has it, Hernan Cortez cried. Relatively close to Condesa, Roma Norte, Polanco & Centro.
