Mexican cuisine is considered a crucial element of national identity, due to its history, creativity, diversity and transcendence.

It is no surprise that in 2010 Mexican Gastronomy was declared Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.

Authentic Mexican recipes were passed down from Nidia’s late grandmother Petra.  Nidia was taught to cook at the age of 12 by her mother Patricia. Embracing her love of cooking and wanting to preserve this traditional style, Chef Nidia was inspired to create Casa Humo to carry on the family cooking traditions.  An experience that awakens all of your senses and, gifted to the guests, to share these important Mexican traditions with the world. 

Chef Nidia is bilingual and classes are taught in English (Spanish classes available on request).


!Viva la Cocina  Mexicana!



“Easily one of the best cooking classes I’ve ever done. Chef Nidia is very patient, knowledgeable, and flexible. If you cook regularly or don’t cook at all, she can accommodate you. The atmosphere is very friendly and open. You’re encouraged to ask questions, and everyone gets to participate in the entire cooking process. I will definitely be taking another class soon.”
