What you'll do
Mexico City is one of the most amazing places in the world to visit for both a short, or extended period of time. There is no shortage of amazingly delicious restaurants and new cuisines to explore on a trip here, but nothing beats a home-cooked meal! Here are the details! A ~4 hour Mexico City Food Market Tour (Mercado Medellin) and Home Cooking Experience where you will learn about some of the unique ingredients that make up the very diverse world of Mexican Cuisine. We will see, smell, and taste fruits you've never heard of, interact with the friendly and fun shop owners, as well as hand-select all of the ingredients to create our very own authentic Mexican meal. We will then head back to my commercial-grade Kitchen and Dining Room in Roma Norte where you will learn how to make the new meal and then enjoy it in a relaxed, comfortable dining room (don’t worry, I will serve and clean up too!). After the tour, I will email you the recipes that we made so you can enjoy them for years to come! Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have, and I hope to meet you soon!

I love to host guests and share my native cuisine and teach visitors how to bring back easy-to-make recipes to enjoy in the comfort of their own kitchens.
