This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Meet Margarita at her home on a typical residential street of Mexico City’s Tlacopac San Ángel neighborhood. Start your experience in Margarita’s garden, weather permitting, where you will enjoy a welcome drink and appetizers. Then head to Margarita's kitchen for your cooking class, during which you will learn to make 2-3 traditional Mexican dishes. Learn to make tortillas from scratch, which you might turn into quesadillas that you can snack on as you make your next dishes, a traditional soup such as creamy chorizo-bean soup or tortilla soup, along with a main dish such as chile rellenos or pork tenderloin in tamarind sauce. You will also learn to make Mexican rice, a classic side served with many main dishes in Mexico that involves toasting the rice and then cooking it together along with a variety of aromatic vegetables. Then sit down together to enjoy your meal at Margarita’s dining table or, in warm summer months, outdoors in Margarita’s garden. End your meal with a traditional rice pudding or a spicy chocolate mousse and coffee or tea.
