On this privately guided culinary adventure in and around Mexico City, you'll experience the incredible culture and cuisine that brings this city to life. You'll discover a metropolis where pre-Hispanic, colonial, and contemporary influences collide, and have an opportunity to experience the city's numerous identities first-hand. Sample a heady Aztec brew, dive into a colonial-era mole recipe, and take in the unique, pre-Hispanic floating farms still in use today. From street food to contemporary Mexican dining trends, traditional restaurants to meals in local homes, our focus throughout will be food and the people who make it. On the ever-present periphery of our taste buds will be the history, art, architecture, landscape, agriculture, and street life that brings everything together.
