David and I love exploring new places and cultures through food (who doesn't?). One of the best ways to do this is by learning how to cook the local cuisine on your own. While group cooking classes are tons of fun, this time around we were looking for something a little more intimate and specialized, luckily I stumbled upon Traveling Spoon, an international company that hires amateur and professional chefs around the world to provide customized cooking classes in their homes. There are currently 6 options in CDMX with prices ranging from $28-$104/person depending on the complexity and length of the class.
We spent 3 hours with our chef, Ismael, learning the tricks to the best guacamole, traditional tortilla soup, and chicken and hibiscus enchiladas. The food was delicious! The added bonus to a class through Traveling Spoon is the ability to sit down to a meal with a local and learn about their life, career, and experiences in Mexico.
