My 7 year old son, 15 year old goddaughter and I spent about five hours yesterday with Gaby. What a wonderful chef and ambassador to Mexican cuisine. She picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the covered market in the oldest section of the city. As we strolled through the market to shop for ingredients, we stopped at stalls as Gaby explained different produce unique to Mexico. We headed back to her kitchen and spent the rest of the time preparing the lunch. My goddaughter is vegetarian so most of the dishes were vegetarian, including a pre-Colombian cactus dish that was her grandfather's favorite. She was very accommodating with the children, and made sure they were included in preparing the lunch. My son enjoyed making tortillas with the press. Gaby is a relaxed, knowledgeable chef and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her market tour and class. She only does this about once a week so be sure to book ahead of time. She is fluent in English, and also speaks German. A very memorable day!
