Sazón literally means “flavor”– but so much more. It's something beyond the ingredients, yet there is no recipe. It's the sensation that even the simplest dish came out right. You taste the freshness, the piquancy, the balance of salty, sweet, rich, and acidic. Sazón is invisible and unmeasurable . . . you just know it when you taste it. 

Grandmothers, mothers, the women who helped out in the kitchen, they all say it’s the flavor of love. Sazón is the warmth of the hearth, the open invitation, the way you share with friends from next door and visitors who came from half a world away. Sound elusive? Not really. After an afternoon at Casa Jacaranda and you’ll get it too.

More HOT than HAUTE

Mexico is saturated in food culture, always and everywhere. It creates the comforts we crave, time and again. The dished you’ve never heard today, tomorrow you’ll never forget. Even the scary dishes make for an adventurous story. You can barely find these flavours back home, while they’re found on every corner here. Now that’s sazón. True luxury is expressed in the intangibles of food, friends and life– something money, in fact, cannot buy.
