If you do one thing in Mexico City, let this be it! Fernando is an amazing host and this was our favorite part of our trip. Great company, amazing food, and we learned a lot!

Really special experience with a phenomenal host. I’ve lived in CDMX for several years and was worried a typical cooking class or market tour would like be too touristy — this was perfect. We learned so much from Fernando about chiles, from their history to their cultural importance in Mexico. Being able to see the famous Mercado Jamaica through his eyes was also amazing. His mother cooked us some delicious typical dishes, we had the chance to make our own salsas, and even got to try some mezcals and interesting and lesser known Mexican spirits. Cannot recommend highly enough! Do it!

10/10 - a true local experience - make new friends over food & drink while learning about the significant impact of Chilies on Mexican culture and cuisine
I’ve been on this tour twice and would go a third time just to hang out with Fernando.
