I grew up surrounded by the flavors and smells of my grandmother's cooking. In my family, traditional recipes for Mexican cuisine have been passed down from generation to generation—customs I love to introduce people to in “mama’s kitchen” and through the dishes that get made there.

Laura was incredibly warm and kind, not to mention an amazing cook!!! My friend and I felt welcome in her home from the moment we stepped through the door, and everything we cooked together was AMAZING! The salsas (5 different kinds!) were the best I’ve ever had and I’m super excited to make them at home. Not to mention the chilaquiles, sopes, enchiladas — everything was SO delicious. Even though we came hungry, we made more food than we could possibly eat & Laura was kind enough to pack up our leftovers to take home. The coffee she made us was also incredible (I actually don’t even like coffee but I could have a cup of *that* coffee every day easily). If you are thinking about booking this experience, do it! Laura, thank you so much for sharing your home, your food, and your stories with us!

Laura and Paulina were so welcoming into their homes. Laura is truly one of a kind with her home cooking skills. Her recipes were easily my favourite food for the entire trip of Mexico. She is the epitome of “Mi casa es su casa”. Her experience would be my first to recommend if anyone plans on visiting Mexico City!

Heart warming afternoon in Laura's home. We made five salsas, enchiladas, sopes, and chilaquiles while learning about cooking techniques and hearing personal stories and touchstones of Mexican culture. Would recommend for a group traveling together.

This was a phenomenal experience. Laura was so kind and caring, and spent so much time with each person. I think this experience was very underpriced--Laura should be charging a lot more for a 4+ hour magical experience.

Paulinas mom, Laura, is a lovely woman, very friendly and a great cook! She was extreamly accommodating and creative with adjusting the food to our vegan diet! We had a nice chat and we learned a bunch about the culture and the life in Mexico City on top of the cooking! Thanks for a lovely day Laura!
