Your host Alex and Ale
A kindergarten teacher with a fun sense of humor, Alex lives with Ale, his wife, a Mexico City tour guide in Puebla, Ale's hometown. They are passionate about sharing their Mexican culture and cuisine with guests. Ale has a wealth of knowledge about the country's history, anthropology, folklore, and of course, culinary traditions. Alex drew inspiration to cook from his grandfather who would serve delicious nopales (grilled cactus paddles) at his home every Sunday. He learned to cook watching his mother and experimenting in the kitchen after watching food shows on TV. The smells and flavors of his childhood and family meals inspired him to cook more, and now he loves sharing this knowledge with his 6-year old students during their regular cooking class. Both Alex and Ale love sharing meals with friends and family as much as they enjoy cooking. Alex is excited to teach guests how to make authentic tacos gobernador, crispy cheese shrimp tacos along with homemade salsa from scratch.
