Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea as you get acquainted with your small group and discuss the dishes you’d like to prepare. Your chef will offer plenty of recommendations that reflect the regional cuisine before you set out on foot to the Sánchez Pascuas food market, about a 10-minute walk away. Here, sample local fruits and hear an explanation of local ingredients, including an amazing array of dried and fresh chiles available. Get a look at colorful produce and specialties like grasshopper before your guide purchases your ingredients (included).
Then head back to Casa Crespo and begin cooking your 4-course meal under the guidance of your instructors, including a sous-chef who explains each step during your hands-on class. Typical Oaxacan dishes you might try are salsa, tacos and rose petal ice cream. Learn to make a main course like mole negro Oaxaqueño (Oaxacan black mole) or caldo de piedra (spicy seafood soup) on the stove, roll up empanadas or grind guacamole with a mortar and pestle.
Afterward, sit down at a table with your small group and enjoy the lunch you’ve cooked together, accompanied by a beverage such as beer, mescal, water or a soft drink. Enjoy another cup of coffee or tea after lunch, completing your tour around 1:30 – 2pm with drop-off at your hotel.
