Your host Lucia
For as long as she can remember Lucía has always been a keen cook. Her passion for gastronomy led her to earn a bachelors degree in Mexican cuisine, another in international cuisine, and a Master’s degree in history focused on Mexican culinary history. She now teaches gastronomic history at local universities. When she’s not working, she is most often found in the kitchen, cooking the recipes she learned from her mother and grandmother, and from her husband’s family, who hail from the Yucatan. A welcoming host, Lucía loves to share Mexican gastronomic history and tell her guests about her memories growing up in the kitchen and her favorite cooking secrets. Lucía can cook a wide variety of Mexican dishes, from traditional family recipes passed down through generations of home cooks, to modern dishes using fresh, local ingredients. Cook together with Lucía and learn some of her favorite cooking tips and techniques as you make traditional Mexican chicken tortilla soup from scratch during this online class.

"Lucia was absolutely amazing to work with. She went through great detail with how to prepare each salsa and we learned so many techniques along the way. At the end, she showed us how to incorporate into a variety of meals. We’ve already made so many of these for friends and everyone has rave reviews. Thank you!!"

"Lucia's tortilla soup class is a 10 out of 10! Not only did our soup turn out delicious but we had a great time making it. Lucia really made us feel like we were in her kitchen with her! She was incredibly friendly and easy to communicate with. She also went above and beyond what we were expecting and took the time to show us a few other traditional foods and answered every question we had. Lucia was truly an amazing host and I can't wait to take another class with her."
