Our past trip. Our next trip.

Finally having “Instagrammed” our past Mexico City- Puebla-Tlaxcala trip, I am ready to begin ravings on our upcoming September trip. A “few” photos of this past trip here, too:

This is an unusual business: one has a need to savour, relish and reflect on the most recent travel to Mexico.  The very interesting, complex people– both participants and regional presenters– the breadth and scope of flavors, ingredients, knowledge and history behind each food shared with us make for deep brooding, and heartwarming reminiscing.

But ….onward to the next culinary adventure!

September 2129, 2019

Mexico City-Querétaro-San Miguel de Allende

This trip is for food aficionados, starting and ending in Mexico City, where we will explore cultural and culinary delights, and onward to discover parts of colonial Mexico and local foods via Querétaro and mainly, San Miguel de Allende!

In San Miguel, a UNESCO Cultural heritage Site since 2008, we will discover Guanajuato and Querétaro’s little known delicious cuisines through our demos and classes in a private home, with chefs, and cooks. Beneath and beyond the foreign retirees and visiting nationals, a thriving local world of course, exists… And the setting is beautiful– colonial architecture, along with galleries, fine handicraft shops, traditional bakeries, and all sorts of bars, cafés and restaurants.

Plan to arrive at least a day early to join our group from the very first gathering in Mexico City on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 6pm.

The fee for this Culinary Adventure is $3750 double occupancy, $4000 single occupancy. As is custom these past 30+ years, our fee includes daily classes or demos, 8 nights hotel, at least two meals a day and all fees associated with the trip, excluding airfare. All classes include well-served tastings or meals– you do not go hungry on our trips!

A $400 deposit is required to reserve a spot on our trip, with the balance due June 12th, 2019.

Join us on an adventure to the high, fertile el Bajío (lowlands) region or heartland of Mexico, where vestiges of the colonial past stand as reminders of their Spanish domination both in San Miguel as in Querétaro.

From chef classes to in-home meals,  regional cooks to demos of local foods both pre-Colombian and post, along with our customary local cultural experiences, we will soak up the warmth of this region, with some time to roam and ramble throughout the charm of San Miguel… and of course, we include a taste of Mexico City. Contrasts- as always- on our culinary adventures!

¡Nos veremos en septiembre!

New Trips, Renewed Vision, Going Back to Our Origins

On our upcoming trips in 2019, you will receive the incisive teachings of Chef Ricardo Muñoz Zurita. Going back to the origins of our culinary adventures, I am re-integrating the fundamental presence of local cooks on all of our trips. These are the people Ricardo –and other chefs– learn from. And the dynamics between cook and chef are marvelous to behold. It reflects a cultural trait most beloved: the respect and appreciation for our elders and those with deep knowledge of their culture.

Join us. My aim is that you fully enjoy and witness our country’s rich, warm, profound cultures. Through food, of course!
