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