Your host Margarita
Learn to make delicious meatballs smothered in a smoky tomato sauce, a heartwarming and aromatic dish along with white rice from a Mexican cookbook author! Margarita was born in Mexico City and has lived there for her entire life. She first started cooking with her grandmother, who was a wonderful cook and taught Margarita to make traditional Mexican dishes in their kitchen. Passionate about food and cooking, Margarita took her first cooking classes at the age of 15. She continued taking cooking courses and went on to work as a food stylist for over 15 years, publishing her recipes and beautiful pictures in several magazines. Margarita continued in these various endeavors until she opened her own business 7 years ago, making cookies (over 60 different varieties!) for local businesses. Margarita is passionate about cooking and particularly teaching and sharing her culinary knowledge with others. She says, “If you want to understand Mexico as a country, you have to taste its flavors. I want to share the richness of Mexico and its great culture of food with others.”

"Margarita is wonderful--our team has not been able to get together in person, and we've been looking for new ways to connect. Since then, so many of us have repeated what we learned from Margarita in our own homes and have shared our experience with others. We'll be back to Traveling Spoon, but specifically we'll also be back to Margarita."

"Margarita was very accommodating with switching the class to zoom and 5 of us enjoyed the class from different homes! We would certainly book another class."

"We had the best time cooking Tortillas with Margarita. She immediately created a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It was fun to be with her and interesting to talk to her. She was open for questions, flexible and shared her experiences openly. The food was delicious. Overall, it was a really nice experience and it almost felt like cooking together with her in Mexico."

"My family participated in a cooking class with Margarita. We had so much fun and I would 100% recommend this class. She explained all steps in an easy to understand way, was very engaging, fun and communicative. The food was incredible, fresh salsa, tortillas, chicken tacos and quesadillas. Needless to say, we enjoyed a mouth watering dinner afterwards! Thank you. "

"Margarita's online Mexican Taco class was fantastic! I did this with my mother and all of us were in different countries, Margarita was able to accommodate the time difference and we had a great time preparing all the food. Margarita made it easy to follow and the pace was just right for us that aren't quite as experienced rolling out tortillas. We ended up with a fantastic meal and a completely different taste of Mexico for my mother, she is looking forward to trying it again, Margarita also gave us some good tips on some variations to try next time. Communication was easy and prompt and my mother and I have a lasting memory of our afternoon. Whenever I cook tacos I'll be reminded of this class and my afternoon with Margarita. Thank you!!"
