What you'll do

Have fun discovering real native Aztec flavors that inconspicuously live in your home through a trivia challenge & a scavenger-hunt-like game, great for individuals, groups, or families with adult children.

Find out about foods that originated in Mexico & have been adopted all over through the last five centuries. You will learn of them while having fun guessing & competing while afterwards gaining access to original recipes for the future surprise of your guests.

Come for a fun time as we see how many of the ingredients you can guess & discover at your home or office. Be amazed at how Mexico has provided the world with unique foods; animals, spices, fruits, vegetables, drinks, liquors, grains & edible flowers that are now owned, used & loved all over.

I will share the characteristics of different food categories, then I will help you guess what the products are & then you will have time to find & show us what you have at hand.

At the end of the game we will have a winner & many new ideas about Mexican food. The person with the largest number of correct answers & items shown wins "official bragging rights" for having the top knowledge of original 'Foods from Mexico for the World' while everybody gets permanent access to the recipes and a 50% discount for my in-person experiences in Mexico.

I have earned my National Guide License & Hospitality, Food & Marketing Diplomas by the Disney University while my vast expertise from fast food, by opening the first McDonald’s in Mexico, to slow food, by managing the Pueblo Quieto Steak House chain, has put me for decades in contact with local & native producers.

All my curated, online, or on-site, experiences showcase the diverse sides of Mexico, from individual presentations to corporate events. First as a hobby & then professionally, I have researched the facts of Mexican history that have been forgotten or left hidden, to help advance the knowledge about Mexico. 500 to 200 years ago, the Viceroyalty of Mexico was the equivalent to a world power & many food & products were strictly exclusive to it. These products have now become of common use all over the world and of my interest.

Carlos' Dia de los Muertos-themed activity was amazing for the entire group. I chose this experience for a corporate team bonding activity and everyone had a great time. Not only was Carlos engaging and kind, he was extremely knowledgable about the history of Mexico and even customized the content for our team and remembered many of the details I told him prior to the experience. I would highly recommend this for teams looking to learn more about the vibrant culture of Mexico!

This was such a fun activity, I ended up being the only guest on the experience and so it was lovely being able to interact with Carlos, who is understandably incredibly passionate about his country and what they have given to international cuisine. It was great fun, despite being the only guest, and I enjoyed rushing around trying to find Mexican related items from my own house. I'd love to do this experience again with a bigger group of people, I bet it's lots of fun! Thank you Carlos!

Carlos was a great host. He was very accommodating. He shared a wealth of knowledge about Mexico’s food source. Great trivia game to consider when looking to do something different with friends. We were a group of 4 and we all enjoyed our evening with Carlos.

I scheduled a private session with Carlos to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with an employee resource group at work and received such great feedback: “Although I am Hispanic I learned a lot. I didn't know the origin of foods. Great job.” “I really loved that the speaker was from Mexico. I also really loved the fun aspect! Even my teenager who is not interested in learning anything started hanging around me after he listened to some of it from his room and saw me running madly through the house. This was one of my favorite virtual events!” “Host was a delight! Content was interesting and fun -- some linguistic, some food, all cultural! LOVED THE EVENT!” Everyone had a great time with Carlos!
