Full description
Discover the best Puebla City has to offer: food! Travel back in time to when the day was spent planning a meal, shopping for ingredients at the market, and returning to cook at home. You can almost smell the sweet-savory Mole Poblano simmering in a clay pot. Stroll through some of Puebla's oldest and most emblematic neighborhoods on the way to the market. Delight in the sights, sounds, aromas, and, of course, the flavors. Learn what it is like to make an authentic Mexican dish from scratch, as our Doña shares her tips and tricks to home-style cooking.

Maria ist ein toller Guide. Man lernt Mexiko und vorallem seine kulinarische Seite noch einmal ganz anders kennen. Die Mole ist einfach top. Ich kann diese Tour nur empfehlen
