Our Creations

Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Whether it's a special meal we make for ourselves or for guests when we are entertaining, we take special care in picking out the ingredients. They must be fresh and of good quality. Presentation is important also, as "the eyes are the first to feast."

Take a look at some of our handiwork below.

Beef Wellington a la Mexicana A classic French Meal with a Mexican Twist

It started with the search for the bakery in Chapala that produces the wonderful bolillos sold throughout the village. Upon finding the source, I inquired about buying a ball of raw dough.
