Before heading to Mexico, I contacted Paulina Abascal, my favorite television pastry chef, based in the suburbs of Mexico City. (I doubt you’ve heard of her. She’s on Spanish-language tv.) Paulina was very friendly and promised me a tour of her kitchen!
We found a taxi to bring us to Dulces Besos (Sweet Kisses), wait for us, and bring us back to our hotel.
Paulina wasn’t in the shop. We hadn’t agreed on a day/hour. But Paulina’s mom was there and followed through on the promise.
We were given as many samples as we wanted and the interns explained the processes of different preparing different sweets.
This was a very exciting experience for me (as you can see from the first photo).
