I am a mexican women with a life time passion for food, specially hot & spicy. I have had the opportunity to live around Mexico from north to south, that is how I got my salsa recepies. I love cooking at home & sharing a great meal. I believe food brings people together & it goes beyond langages.
When traveling, always visit the local market, its where you find the real flavor & culture, is an opportunity to interact with locals & an excuse for amazing pitures!

We will meet at an ancient church located at the heart of Tacuba, a neighborhood with a history that goes way back to the times before the Spanish arrived in America. A few steps away is the Tacuba...
Natalia was a wonderful instructor! She was extremely kind and accommodating to our group of 7, welcoming us into her home - "mi casa es su casa." We started the class with a tour of the market and quick history lesson, where she answered all of our questions (cooking related and otherwise!). Her relationship with the workers there was invaluable, as it gave us the opportunity to ask them questions about their produce, as well. From there, we went back to her home where she each gave us a fun apron and workspace. We started off by making homemade tortillas. She taught us what the dough should look and feel like, and some changes we could make when we make them in the future. She brought us into her kitchen to make the refried beans, cook the tortillas, and make the salsa! It wasn't just show and tell, she did an excellent job having all seven of us participate. Everything was delicious and I will definitely be making the recipes back home - this class was one of the highlights of our trip, and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Mexico City!
This was a delicious experience! My friend and I did the class together and started with a market tour. We didn't just watch the teacher pick up ingredients but rather we were taught about the different peppers and items needed and we helped choose what would be best. The homemade tortillas were so fun to make and I can totally see myself recreating these dishes at home! Two words: Salsa Macha. Ooooh sooooo gooood
Highly recommend! Natalia was an excellent instructor and host! She introduced us to Mexican culture, different foods, educated us on history and welcomed us into her home. First she took us on a tour of the market and showed us all the kind of spices we could use, she showed us how to pick the best kinds and to judge the ripeness of fruits. She then brought us back to her darling home and had prepared a cooking station for us to work. She was well organized, articulate and patient. She encouraged us and made cooking so fun! Natalia is kind and friendly. We would definitely take a class with Natalia again. She shared so much of her passion for cooking and inspired us! Natalia's class would be fantastic for a large girl's group cooking class, a couple's cooking class or an individual cooking class. Natalia is versatile and great conversationalist. We were so happy to make a friend! You will not regret taking Natalia's class- Cheers!
