For Solo Travellers
Those of us who are solo travellers take great pride in our self-sufficiency.
But if you are a food lover, and a plate-sharer, being a solo diner kind of limits the number of dishes you can taste on the menu without stuffing yourself silly.
And, if you aren’t fluent when it comes to the language, you can miss out on the best dishes because you couldn’t identify them on the menu.
Opt for 2-4 hours (2 is the minimum) and we can do street food, or upscale dining (or anything in between). Your choice. We’ll start with a short interview* and based on your interests, I’ll suggest / select a market, or street food stands, or a restaurant(s) to suit your taste, budget and location.
Fee does not include added costs such as meals, snacks etc. Don’t worry though, we discuss those variables in the interview and I work it out so that you get the most out of the experience.
* at no charge – this is also your opportunity to determine if I’d be a great dining companion!
For food-loving home cooks
The habit of many people is to move to a place and try to find the foods they are used to. This is certainly something you can do in Mexico, but you can make the most of your experience of living in Mexico by getting into the regional foods that are so healthy for you and your family.
As your guide to getting to know these foods, I’ll first do a brief interview with you to find out what your current habits, needs and interests are, foodwise. Then, we’ll schedule a day where we can go together to your favorite mercado or tianguis to shop for some new ingredients for you to work with. The last part of our “session” will be in your kitchen where we go through the process of preparing these ingredients in straightforward recipes that will give you confidence using them in the future.
We can do this one-on-one or you can assemble a small group of friends (no more than 6 in total, please)
