Description

Learn to cook a traditional Mexican meal in the kitchen of a private home located in the Coyoacan neighborhood of Mexico City. This 3-hour lesson and homemade meal includes a personalized introduction to Mexican cuisine by your host whose culinary know-how was passed down by their father and grandmother. Savor the dishes you made for lunch or dinner along with your local host. Rather than being a professional cooking class, this experience immerses you in the authentic home of a local family to share the culture and cuisine of Mexico.

Join your host for a private cooking demonstration and traditional meal at a contemporary home, built amongst colonial houses in the lively, tree-lined neighborhood of Coyoacan. You'll meet in the home kitchen where you can roll up your sleeves and join in. 

You can expect to prepare 2–3 typical Mexican dishes such as chilaquiles (lightly fried corn tortillas) or corn quesadillas with a variety of fillings like mushrooms, peppers, nopales (cactus), huitlacoche (corn fungus), and flor de calabaza (squash flowers), accompanied by beans or a tomato chickpea rice as sides.

The cooking portion of your experience lasts about 1.5 hours. Afterward, feast on the lunch or dinner that you helped prepare, and hear discussions on Mexico's gastronomic heritage. You'll leave with new recipes, an appreciation of Mexican culture, and a true glimpse into local life.
