Frida’s Fiestas – a traditional Mexican dinner

Event Details

  • For Frida Kahlo, every occasion was a cause for rejoicing. She met each holiday, birthday or religious observance with enthusiasm. Her style of cooking and entertaining was as vibrant and colorful as her painting.
    She knew the value of being a good cook. It was as much a part of her Mexicanness as her Oaxaca style of dress. But she became a good cook because of her love for Diego Rivera.


    Come and taste traditional Mexican cuisine, which was recognized by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2010.


    Monica Navarrete, a Mexican foodie and experienced cook, will prepare for you Frida’s favourites dishes in this unforgettable evening.

    What our participant say:


    ‘The spicy, succulent and delicious meat dishes were irresistible’


    ‘The Mexican dinner organised at Wine4Fun was a real treat. Not only did it offer the luxury of tasting authentic home-made Mexican food and drinks without the need to travel outside the center of Den Haag, but it also served as a glimpse into the Mexican culture as the hosts kindly explained some of the context and historical facts behind each dish.


    The spicy, succulent and delicious meat dishes were irresistible and had guests request a second or third round as some of us just couldn’t get enough. It was a real fiesta for the senses. Big thanks to Catalina and team.’ – Lilia Petkova
