Margarita went above and beyond! She was so patient, caring, and knowledgeable. She was very organized, and made the process of learning the recipes so simple! She also had lots of wonderful recommendations for our time in Mexico City that we truly enjoyed. We definitely recommend this experience if you are looking to cook some great food and have a conversation with someone who understands the pulse of Mexico City.

What a great experience it was! Margarita hosts the event in her beautiful home in Mexico City. She taught us several new cooking techniques and flavors which we will take home with us to share with friends and family. She also giving us great and unique recommendations for our time in Mexico. She is knowledgeable, detail-oriented, and has an inspiring appreciation for food and art.

If you like cooking (or if you want to learn more about cooking) this experience is perfect. Margarita taught us how to make homemade tortillas, chili rellenos, and green salsa, among many other things (I'm just listing my favorites). My husband and I love to cook and bake, and this class provides something that a cookbook can not - a hands on approach. We learned what the texture of the masa/water ratio should feel like to make tortillas and the technique to roasting, peeling, and removing the veins and seeds from the poblano peppers before stuffing them for the chili rellenos .
We were most excited at the opportunity to join Margarita in her home for the class. I think that is what makes it extra authentic, to be able to learn and cook in the same kitchen Margarita makes meals for her family and friends.
The duration of our visit felt like spending time with a friend. We made appetizers, then enjoyed them in the garden with hibiscus tea and beer. Then we returned to the kitchen to complete the main course, before heading back out to the patio to eat, talk and drink wine. Her sweet dog Lola enjoyed laying in the sunshine and getting pets from me too!
Come hungry and be prepared to leave full and satisfied.
