About
Enjoy a private and authentic gourmet Mexican meal in a local Mexico City home with your host Margarita. This is a perfect experience for anyone looking to connect with local culture over food. Margarita was born in Mexico City and has lived there her entire life. She first started cooking with her grandmother who taught Margarita to make traditional Mexican dishes in their kitchen. Passionate about food and cooking, Margarita took her first cooking classes at the age of 15. She went on to work as a food stylist, publishing her recipes and beautiful pictures in several magazines. Margarita opened her own business 7 years ago, making cookies for local businesses. Co-author of a Mexican cookbook, Margarita is passionate about cooking and particularly teaching and sharing her culinary knowledge with others. She says, “If you want to understand Mexico as a country, you have to taste its flavors. I want to share the richness of Mexico and its great culture of food with others.”

What to expect
This is a unique opportunity to visit a home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Join your host Margarita at her luxury 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 and hear stories of Margarita’s life growing up in the city. Margarita’s husband Gonzalo, an economist, may join you for evening or weekend experiences if he is not working. After your welcome drink and snack, sit down at their family dining table and enjoy a traditional three-course Mexican meal. Your meal will begin with a traditional first course such as corn soup or Mexican tortilla soup, and will be followed with a Mexican main such as chiles rellenos, stuffed chili peppers, or chicken stuffed with cheese and served with salsa verde, all served with traditional Mexican rice. End your meal with a classic dessert such as chocolate mousse with vanilla crème, or crepes with Mexican dulce de leche, served alongside coffee or tea.

Margarita, a Traveling Spoon hostess, provides an awesome, authentic Mexican food experience
Dec 2019
My wife and I had the good fortune of visiting the home of Margarita and her husband, Gonzalo, in Mexico City as part of a Traveling Spoon experience. It was so enjoyable! She is a food genius as well as an official "food stylist." Margarita made a variety of delicious food courses and explained the pertinent background details about them. I would highly recommend this if you are remotely a "foodie."

Amazing experience
Nov 2019
Our host, Margarita, was incredible. Her home is lovely; she is knowledgeable, organized, and had all 3 of us participating in many aspects of preparing our multi course meal. Started out in a local market with many stalls offering a variety of local fresh ingredients. There is not enough room to describe this amazing experience, I cannot recommend Margarita more highly.
