What you'll do

We are very passionate about churros and chocolate, especially the Mexican kind. You may not know this but chocolate was invented in Mexico by an indigenous group and then exported to the world. Together, we will cook one of Mexico´s favorite pastries. We will go through the whole process from scratch. We will also create an amazing ganache chocolate using some of the most amazing cacao beans we have from Mexico. We will also make hot chocolate from scratch to pair with the churros.

We will be cooking located in one of the most vibrant neighborhoods of Mexico City. Don´t worry about needing fancy equipment because you do not need a profesional kitchen at home to make this recipe.

My family and I had a wonderful time with Christian learning to make churros. Christian is a fabulous host and a beautiful human being. His meaningful stories, his care in teaching, his wide knowledge of cooking, all are a huge part of this experience. The churros we made are the best I've ever had. The sauce we made too was incredible!! I now know the secret and can reproduce them at home!! Gratitude to Christian for making this a lovely way to spend an afternoon in Mexico City!

This churro making class was so wonderful - Christian and Ricardo welcomed us into their lovely home and it was SO stunning! He had thoughtful details planned like making the churro sugar Christmas colors! You won’t regret doing this class - can’t recommend enough!
