Discover the culture of chili pepper and make your own salsa with a local expert in Mexico City

Meet Fernando, he is passionate about Mexican cuisine. He is the creator of the first gastronomic workshop in Mexico focused on spreading knowledge of a main national ingredient, the chili pepper.

He also own a family business founded by my grandfather in 1960, specializing in the dried chili trade. He's proud to have grown up surrounded by the life and colors of the Market de Jamaica, one of the largest markets of Mexico City.

You will be fascinated by its size, its colorful flowers, the variety of products, and the bustle inside. You will make some exciting stops to try some awesome food and beverages.

Let yourself be guided by someone who has lived immersed in this market for over 25 years. Then you will visit a family store specializing in dried chilies—to experience the gastronomic workshop in a private studio.

Focused on chilies and spiciness, you will live a unique experience of flavors and aromas. Here you’ll make your own salsa in the traditional way, try some different kinds of mezcal, and participate in three tastings while you learn the history of Mexican gastronomy.
