Tengo un diplomado como sommelier,, por lo que puedo sugerir y elaborar cenas maridaje
Me gusta trabajar con producto local y de temporada para dar mas frescura y sabor a mis platillos.
Considero que gran parte de de la experiencia gastronómica que brindo durante el servicio, es, compartir el trasfondo cultural de cada receta, su origen, el porque de las técnicas utilizadas
For me, cooking is...
un arte que alimenta todos los sentidos

I can’t stress enough on how amazing our experience was, every person travelling to Mexico MUST invest in this opportunity of taste and smell. Each course was explained in detail by Rodrigo which helped tell the story of where the ingredients came from and why it was chosen.
I’ve been travelling to Mexico for over 25 years and can’t believe its taken me this long to probably have one of the best meals to date period. I will definitely be booking a private chef every time we travel to Mexico.
Rodrigo among being an amazing chef also has extensive knowledge on wine and was able to pair the courses with bottles from around the world before we even got to Mexico.
To say that our meal, wine and experience was amazing is an understatement.
Muchas Gracias. Rodrigo!! Nos Vemos Pronto amigo
