Margarita, Mexico
Learn to make tacos and salsa from scratch from a Mexican cookbook author! Margarita was born in Mexico City and has lived there for her entire life. She first started cooking with her grandmother, who was a wonderful cook and taught Margarita to make traditional Mexican dishes in their kitchen. Passionate about food and cooking, Margarita took her first cooking classes at the age of 15. She continued taking cooking courses and went on to work as a food stylist for over 15 years, publishing her recipes and beautiful pictures in several magazines. Margarita continued in these various endeavors until she opened her own business 7 years ago, making cookies (over 60 different varieties!) for local businesses. Margarita is passionate about cooking and particularly teaching and sharing her culinary knowledge with others. She says, “If you want to understand Mexico as a country, you have to taste its flavors. I want to share the richness of Mexico and its great culture of food with others.”
