Private Journey

 

Mexican food has long been staple fare in the high streets of the UK and the malls of the US.  Tasty burritos, enchiladas, tacos and fajitas –just the names are enough to make the mouth water.

But going back to the cuisine’s roots in the streets and markets of Mexico, beyond the fast food joints and even the better restaurants outside the country opens the eyes as well as the mouths. There are both subtle and clear differences between the delicacies of different regions, which you’ll discover on this unique holiday exploring the inspiration behind some of the most delicious snacks. What’s more you’ll get to know three of Mexico’s most interesting and enticing cities: the capital, Puebla and Oaxaca; there are guided tours in all of them.

In Mexico City you visit San Juan market, which caters not only for the casual shopper but also for some of the country’s best known chefs and restaurants, with a huge range of exotic ingredients including crocodile and wild boar.  Move on into the streets of the older neighbourhoods to try local delicacies on the stalls lining the streets and markets.  Move on to Puebla, home town of many of the most talented chefs, inspired by some extraordinary sweet and salty delicacies.  In mountain-based Oaxaca, you’ll go shopping with a local cook and learn how to prepare a four course meal featuring the town’s delicious gastronomy.
