¡FROM MEXICO WITH MUCHO AMOR!
Hello! My name is Mexican Priest.
I am the chef and owner of this wonderful store. I live in Mexico with my beautiful family, we are immigrants who settled in the magnificent center of Mexico - the state of Jalisco. We have been living in Mexico for a long time and every day enjoy the people, nature and of course the most delicious food in the world.
What is the first thing that comes to mind? I bet is tequila and mariachi, right? Ha-ha, now you need to get rid of all the stereotypes about Mexico that you know, so I will be your guide. In fact, Mexico is a huge country consisting of 31 states and 1 federal district. Each state has its own distinctive culture and traditions, food, spices, laws etc. Jalisco is located on the Pacific coast and has borders with the states of Nayarit, Zacatecas, Aguascalientes, Durango, Guanajuato, San Luis Potosi, Colima and Michoacan.
The truth is that the family is a treasure that must be cared for and the only permanent thing that we have, it is foundation of society and that is why we must take care of it, give it attention, love, discipline, respect. Family is an axis of the formation of a child. I try to set an example for my childrens, show them how to respect the human labor and transmit cultural values. My whole family feels a duty that we must share the Mexican culture with the rest of the inhabitants of our beautiful planet, so that’s why we are here.
The culture of Mexico reflects the country's complex history and is the result of the gradual blending of native culture with Spanish culture and other cultures. First inhabited more than 10,000 years ago, the cultures that developed in Mexico became one of the cradles of civilization. During the 300-year reign of Spain, Mexico was a crossroad for the people and cultures of Europe, Africa, and Asia. The government of independent Mexico actively promoted shared cultural traits in order to create a national identiy.
Most likely you don’t even know how many amazing things exist in Mexico. It is a whole universe which is full of incredible, beautiful, mystical, tasty or healthy things. We want to share with you some of Mexican art objects, a bunch of delicious peppers, natural handcrafted spices and all that have wonderful taste, aromas and smells. We try to do everything, so it will be the real Mexican treasures being in your home or restaurant.
Mexican culture is incredibly unique and Mexican cuisine is even recognised by UNESCO Heritage List. Its use of unique ingredients and spices that are only found on its territory makes it remarkable. Most of Mexican recipes come from ancient times when people had to rely only on nature to bring goodness into food: the purity, the power of earth, water and sun. That’s the exact feel we want to share with you through our products.

We take pride in what we do and believe that the key to success is customer’s approval and satisfaction, so we will never take any compromise on the quality and quantity of the ingredients.
We smoke sea salt, spices and peppers over real mesquite chunks - one of the most expensive varieties of wood. It is a dense hardwood that burns slowly for a long time and gives produce a unique aroma and taste, with the intense, earthy flavour. Mesquite tree has very long roots that helps it to find water in Mexican dried soils, and it also grows extremely slowly and can't be cut down. The only way to get mesquite wood is to collect fallen trees.
