THE STORY BEHIND MEXICAN FOOD TOURS

Let us take you on a cultural-culinary journey that you will never forget.

Founded in 2012 Mexican Food Tours was the dream of two friends who wanted to share Mexico’s culinary traditions with people from all around the world. It all started in a birthday party, a small talk, a great desire to become entrepreneurs and the conviction that Mexico is a great country with lots of traditions that should be share with others.

Today Mexican Food Tours is owned and run by Connie Estefan and Lety Hinojos, both passionated and enthusiastic women.

In Mexican Food Tours we have love for what we do and we work hard to create the best culinary experiences. We are convinced that Mexico is a country with a long history and an ancient culinary tradition. The wide range of Mexican regional food makes it appealing to both locals and tourists. Mexico is an enormous country and each of its states has culinary specialties. Some of these delicious dishes, drinks or family recipes are well known around the world, but some of them aren’t.

Mexico is one of the countries that is well known for its exquisite food and Mexico City has been consistently rated as one of the best cities in the world to eat well.

At Mexican Food Tours we designed the first food tour within Polanco neighborhood, which is one of the most unique and exclusive neighborhoods in Mexico City. Furthermore Polanco is considered the culinary heart of the city, some of the best Mexican restaurants of the world are located here.

We also have designed some other food tours and culinary experiences and will continue to do so. In 2014 we launched our Mexican Cooking Classes where you can learn some of the secrets of our cuisine with the help of great Mexican chefs, and in 2020, we became borderless and we started doing virtual cooking classes, bringing the best of Mexico gastronomy to families, friends, co-workers to kitchens all around the globe.

We want to share our experiences, our love and passion for food and our fascinating culinary culture with people from all over the world.

These reasons, and many others, inspired us to create Mexico’s finest  culinary experiences.

Mexican Food Tours offers local citizens and vacationers from abroad the opportunity to discover Mexico’s flavors.

Our tours, cooking classes and experiences offer the opportunity to learn more of the history,  gastronomy, culture and architecture of Mexico. We want you to experience Mexico in a way only the locals do. From our most famous dishes to a wide variety of food, we have something for you. We never stop reinventing us. We have on site experiences (face to face) and virtual experiences. And we even take our experiences one step further by tailoring them according to our clients needs. From cooking parties to team building events, there’s always something going on.

Let us take you on a cultural-culinary journey that you will never forget.

Buen Provecho.

Hi, I’m Sofia,  since I was a kid my passion has been cooking. My first job as a chef  was at a Michelin star rated restaurant “Le Grill”  and then at “Omer” by Alain Ducasse in France. In 2020, I started working for Mexican Food Tours, teaching online cooking classes.  For me cooking is the best way to tell a story, and there is one behind each dish.  I love Mexico and want to share my knowledge, my family recipes and the stories behind them with people from all around the world.
