Trip Overview
Overview

On this culinary adventure in and around Mexico City during Day of the Dead, immerse yourself in the complex cultural identity of a metropolis where pre-Hispanic, colonial, and contemporary influences collide. We’ll explore mouthwatering local gastronomy, celebrating the harmony as well as the dissonance that define this layered city, which thrums with the activity of a large population of regional migrants and modern transplants alike. We’ll experience moments when the city’s numerous identities are expressed and aligned perfectly—for instance, enjoying a street snack of tacos al pastor while taking in a hidden Diego Rivera mural. But we’ll also be looking for the fractures, zooming in on specific influences: a heady Aztec brew, or a colonial-era mole recipe, or the unique, pre-Hispanic floating farms still in use today. We’ll also be sure to head out of the center city with a visit to the floating boats and green oasis of?Xochimilco. From street food to contemporary Mexican dining trends, traditional restaurants to meals in local homes, our focus throughout will be food and the people who make it. On the ever-present periphery of our taste buds will be the history, art, architecture, landscape, agriculture, and street life that brings everything together.

Trip Leader

Paco
Francisco ("Paco") is a Mexico City native who has a deep passion for his country's cuisine. In addition to being one of Culinary Backstreets' Mexico Team Leaders, he is also a bit of a Renaissance man, having been a former champion chess player and bullfighter. But these days, Paco focuses on the antojitos, or little culinary cravings of his hometown, which are a hallmark of a culinary tour of the city with him.
