For as long as she can remember, Lucía has always been a 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 a traditional-style home and is designed to receive guests. Join her for a delicious home-style Mexican meal and relax in her peaceful garden, a world away from the hustle and bustle of central Mexico City. The meal will be seasonal and feature authentic Mexican dishes like albondigas en salsa de chile chipotle mecos (meatballs in a smoked chili sauce), sopa de nopalitos (cactus served in a bean broth), or traditional moles (savory meat dishes cooked in spices and chili sauce). If you book a cooking experience, join Lucia for a cooking demonstration and learn to cook authentic Mexican dishes as you watch Lucia cook in her spacious home kitchen. Lucia also offers an optional market tour, in which you meet her at Mercado San Angel, a bustling covered market in Mexico City, and Lucía will walk you through the market teaching you about the local products on offer. After exploring the market together you will take a taxi to Lucia’s home to begin your cooking demonstration.
