What you'll do
Cooking classes in Mexico can be a wonderful experience, but what happens when you return home and can't find the ingredients to make it on your own? I've got you covered. We'll meet at my home in Condesa to prep and cook our meal together with a mix of traditional cooking equipment while teaching you how to swap it out with alternatives that are staples in every home kitchen. We'll learn how to prepare and chow down on: / Classic Tinga (chicken or veggie) / Tamales (savory and sweet) / Chilaquiles (verde) Want a shorter class or a day that isn't scheduled? Ask me!

Host on Airbnb since 2014
I started working in my grandfather's butcher shop at the age of 6, wrapping customers' packages in the same style as he had since the 1940's. Surrounded by farms, dairies, and homesteads, we spent our free time in nature, hiking, camping, fishing, and hunting. The dichotomy of the two food systems—self-sustainable vs. supermarket—inspired me to only eat the things I could grow or hunt, and cook myself. I've maintained some form of this ideology for the past 29 years while traveling the world to gain knowledge and hone my skills. At 21, I began making the world my culinary classroom by making pasta with Italian experts in Florence, apprenticing with a Four Seasons/Cordon Bleu chef, sous cheffing a test kitchen in NYC, mastering luau emus with native Hawaiians, and now pressing tortillas with the abuelas and street food masters of CDMX.
We'll chow down on everything we make together!
Seasonal agua fresca will be served during the cooking class.
We'll provide all of the equipment necessary, but you'll have the opportunity to purchase some of the equipment of your own;)
