Authentic Mexican Cooking Lesson With a Gastronomic Historian in Mexico City
  • Authentic Mexican Cooking Lesson With a Gastronomic Historian in Mexico City

    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 like potato leek soup, albondigas en salsa de chile chipotle mecos (meatballs in a smoked chili sauce), sopa de nopalitos (cactus paddles in bean broth), fideo soup (Mexican noodle soup), traditional moles (savory meat dishes cooked in spice and chili sauce) and chile en nogada (stuffed poblano chilies, smothered in creamy walnut sauce).

    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. Lucia has a two guest minimum.

      The cooking lesson with Lucia was a highlight of our trip! Lunch was delicious - were eagerly waiting recipes via email to try at home.

      Lucia welcomed us into her beautiful home like old friends. She gave us the option of watching or helping. As we worked, she demonstrated and explained steps and techniques.

      We appreciate that Lucia was well organized: she sent the menu before we arrived considered a food allergy included requested Lime Soup on menu it was delicious.

      Lucia included many great-tasting unexpected touches: Margaritas from recipe she enjoys and recently received ant eggs tostada vegan mole taco great green salsa delicious guacamole corn cake with rompope sauce.

      Lucias kitchen was well-designed/laid out. The set-up allowed for us to easily watch, listen, and participate. Looking forward to a return visit.
