Jose Garces Mexican Marketplace
Chef Jose Garces is proud to announce the opening of an authentic Mexican marketplace, La Bodega, which will offer-up homemade, prepared, and ready-to-cook specialty items online.
"I’m excited to introduce this curated marketplace of Latin specialty goods that will allow patrons to make Latin cooking part of their at-home culinary tradition,” said Chef Garces. “My goal is to enable shoppers to connect with their loved ones in the kitchen or focus on honing their culinary skills in a way that has brought my own family and I such joy, especially during this time.”
Guests can choose from over 100 online items of prepared and packaged foods, including Mole Spice, Truffle Mushrooms, Fresh Huaraches, and more.
The marketplace also offers Chief Garces Meal Boxes, so you, too, can cook your meal at home. Serving four persons, each box includes fresh, pre-measured ingredients and step-by-step recipes to create flavorful Mexican-inspired dishes, ranging from $20 – 35 per box
