At the lovely and centric Los Lirios Bed and Breakfast, nestled amongst the cobblestones of Jalatlaco, Tlayudona and Caldo de Piedra Pop-Up are teaming up to host a unique and scrumptious dining experience!
Chef Victor Gachupín will be preparing delicious caldo de piedra, or “stone soup”, which will be served with typical appetizers, handmade tortillas, agua de sabor, and a courtesy mezcalito. As you eat, you'll be privy to the award-winning documentary about Victor's family's culinary art, called “The Path to Stone Soup”.
You'll be able to witness a series of local herbs and other ingredients transform into a delicious meal in front of your eyes before we munch down in Los Lirios' cozy central space.
What exactly is Caldo de Piedra/Stone Soup?
Caldo de piedra is a traditional freshwater seafood soup served in a hollowed-out gourd known as a jícara, featuring ingredients such as red snapper, shrimp, cilantro, chilies, tomatoes and epazote, an herb native to Mexico. It is cooked using white-hot river stones, which have been slowly heated over an open fire and added into the gourds. The soup is served bubbling and steaming – a delicious offering with more than 2,000 years of history. This unique pop-up event celebrates culture, cuisine and history .
