Savour mouthwatering treats on this culinary & cultural experience, taking in the markets of the artistic Zona Roma district and learning the tricks to creating authentic and delicious Mexican dishes. Sample fine mezcals, fresh tortillas and local spices.
Accompanied by two local chefs you will have the opportunity to explore the bohemian district of Zona Roma with its leafy streets and lively buzz.
