Mexican-Canadian couple Michael and Angelica Lavergne have long been involved in helping to promote the family's rural tourism business in the old colonial town of Huamantla, Mexico located just 35 minutes from Puebla's International Airport.
After returning home from more than a decade of travel and work across Asia, Latin and North America they knew exactly what they wanted to do; To bring guests and visitors from across the globe into the wonderful world of Mexican Home Cooking.
"My earliest memories are the sounds and smells of a Mexican Kitchen!" said Angelica. "Even after 15 years of living around the world I am only really at home here in Mexico, among the food, family and friendships that are such an important part of Mexican culture."
Relying on their family network of ranch and hacienda owners and based out of the Hotel Hacienda Soltepec / La Escondida, Zarzamora tours provides authentic Mexican cooking classes and hacienda stays for small, intimate groups and families. Regional speciality dishes and local markets along with historic walking tours and visits to private homes and working haciendas provide the group's focus and inspiration.
According to Michael Lavergne, "The Mexican kitchen has given us one of the most successful and appreciated cuisines the world has known. We invite guests to discover the secrets of authentic Mexican cooking, to wander our markets for fresh local produce, to visit our homes and haciendas to share a meal, exchange recipes and of course to roll up their sleeves for a hands-on experience in their very own Mexican Kitchen!"
