We will meet at an ancient church located at the heart of Tacuba; which history goes way back before the spanish arrived to America. Steps away is the Tacuba Market where we will buy the fresh ingredients to cook our delicious variety of mexican salsas.

Then we will head to my place, 300 mts from the market and will get right to business. We will cook the salsas in the four traditional ways: raw, fried, boiled and roasted. All different in personality, flavor, chile and spicy level. You will be surprised how easy it is to cook salsa, at the same time we will prepare some quesadillas to eat with our salsas. Unlimited jamaica water included.

At the end you will leave with a jar of salsa and new recepies to take home!

When booking this experience you also support the local commerce.

Please consider experience can be held in more than one language simultaneously.

If you prefer different time or day, we can arrange it!

We can also cook Tamales, Pozole, Fish Tacos

I am a mexican cook with a life time passion for food, specially hot & spicy. I have had the opportunity to live around Mexico from north to south, coast to coast, always cooking with & for local & foreign palates, that is how I learned most of my recepies. As well as studies at the National School of Mexican Gastronomy. I love cooking at home & sharing a great meal.

I believe food brings people together & it goes beyond langages.

Great overall experience. We enjoyed the walk in the market to buy fresh ingrediants. Natalie's home was very well setup and instagramable. We had fun making four different kinds of salsas and tasting them. Natalia had a great personality and it was fun to spend time with her. Would highly recommend this experience.

Enjoyed the class very much. Going to the local market and making the different salsas. It was all delicious. The only thing I had an issue with was Natalia saying if there is something that needs improvement to message her privately and to rate her nothing but 5 stars. Even if said jokingly, that's not ok.

Yazmin was so funny and nice and I loved the positive/goofy energy she brought! The class wasn’t hard at all she really helps guide you through it so it’s not overwhelming and the salsas were AMAZINGGGGG!!!!! I can’t wait to try to make these at home 😋🥰

I did experience on my birthday and it turned out to be the highlight of my whole day!! Natalia, her assistant Jazmin were awesome and so knowledgeable. I had such a great time with the group and made connections that went on afterwards. One of the best parts of this is first shopping at the market and Natalia showed us how to pick the best product and we learned about different types of produce. Also, doing this in Natalia’s home was so special. It felt warm and friendly. And in the end we made GREAT salsas!! So yummy!! I want to take another experience with Natalia.

Natalia and Yazmin are very cool people! We had so much fun! The food was delicious, the hosts went out of there way to get extra treats from the market that we were interested in, the home is beautiful! We made friends with all the people in our group, and the environment was festive and social while maintaining excellent instructions in the making of the salsas and with top hygienic considerations throughout. I highly recommend!

Natalia took us through the market, purchasing food items which gives us a good feel for local culture. The three different types of salsa are great to try out with the quesadilla. This experience is definitely for anyone one wanting a wholesome food eating experience.
