Culinary Adventures in Mexico City and Beyond with Ruth Alegria

Hola and bienvenidos to my new site and to Mexico!
I organize custom designed culinary tours of Mexico City and beyond, from the best known of the city’s colonias to its most overlooked .  
For every season in Mexico there is a celebration whose focus is the cuisine and rituals of that place and time.
Mexico and Mexico City in particular is my favorite culinary destination. I have spent  time exploring and discovering the best it has to offer. My passion for eating well has led me to the best markets, restaurants and food stalls in town. Come join me and learn about the millennial culture that gave the world so much from tomatoes, chocolate, chiles, corn and so much more!
