Description

Meet Lucía, a culinary expert at Mercado San Angel, a bustling covered market filled with everything you need to make a traditional meal at home. Lucía will teach you about the local products on offer - from farm-fresh fruits and vegetables, to dried chilies and spices, to flowers and handicrafts.

After exploring the market together you will take a taxi to Lucia’s home to begin your cooking lesson. During this experience, you will cook authentic Mexican dishes with your host Lucía in her spacious home kitchen and learn some of her favorite cooking tips and techniques! Lucía can cook a wide variety of Mexican dishes, from traditional family recipes passed down through generations of home cooks, to modern dishes using fresh, local ingredients. 

Your menu will be based on the season and might include dishes such as albondigas en salsa de chile chipotle mecos (meatballs in a smoked chili sauce) and sopa de nopalitos to name a few.


Don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity to experience Mexican culture and cuisine firsthand!

For as long as she can remember Lucía has always been a very keen cook. Her passion for gastronomy led her to earn a bachelors degree in Mexican cuisine, another in international cuisine, and a Master’s degree in history focused on Mexican culinary history. She now teaches gastronomic history at local universities. When she’s not working, she is most often found in the kitchen, cooking the recipes she learned from her mother and grandmother, and from her husband’s family, who hail from the Yucatan. 

A welcoming host, Lucía loves to share Mexican gastronomic history and tell her guests about her memories growing up in the kitchen and her favorite cooking secrets. Lucía lives near San Angel, a residential neighborhood in south Mexico City. Her house is in the traditional style and is designed to receive guests. Join her for a delicious homemade meal and relax in her peaceful garden, a world away from the hustle and bustle of central Mexico City.

If you prefer to just watch her cook, Lucía can offer a cooking demonstration where she will show you how she prepares a few dishes.

Please note that Lucía doesn't host on Sundays.
