Graciela and Jorge are super hosts and gave us the best experience we had in Mexico City - and that's saying a lot because we had a terrific four days there. The visit to the Central de Abastos food market was fascinating and an education unto itself - not to be missed. We learned how to make an original recipe Margarita and then went on to making Tacos al Pastor. Graciela and Jorge have created a wonderfully vibrant environment and Graciela is adept at making everyone feel like a master chef. We now have terrific memories of our day at Aura Cocina Mexicana. Mucho gracias!
