What you'll do
You will get to know the local flavors and the high end restaurants of the city in a unique experience. Because we are convinced that the only way to know the culture of a place is to taste its food and the culinary expressions of its people. The culinary concept of San Cristóbal de las Casas is in its premises, in its recipes and vegetables, in markets and restaurants; in the kitchens that represent the best of the Pueblo Mágico. For that reason, Tomate Quesillo is the result of 4 years of research in the gastronomic scene of this city in the state of Chiapas. We´ll start at La Abuelita Books, Coffee and Food, with a small dish and talking about the reasons behind Mexican cuisine, we will visit 5 restaurants, from the highest end to local gems. In each one we will eat and talk about techniques, textures, ingredients and history of this great cuisine, which is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. All our tour is done on foot, and it is in the center of the city. In our tour we walk an approximate 1.5 km in intervals of maximum 600 meters.
I am the founder of Tomate Quesillo gastronomic laboratory, where we have researched Mexican and Chiapas food for more than four years. We are dedicated to working on the recovery of recipes and food traditions in Mexico. I also belong to the Slow Food Mexico Cooks Alliance, where we seek with our work to provide good, healthy and fair food. I also started the restaurant inside the Abuelita Books, Coffee & Food bookstore. This workshop is given in collaboration with Citlali Ocampo. Chef Chcolatera, who for more than 5 years has participated as a speaker at different chocolate fairs, also she was part of the staff of José Ramón Castillo and has taught at different universities. She owns the Xocowa Chocolatería in San Cristóbal de Las Casas. Your Airbnb account is: firstname.lastname@example.org
