HANDS ON MEXICAN COOKING CLASS We provide the ingredients and know-how; all you have to do is roll up your sleeves and savor the experience: begin the day with an IN-DEPTH MARKET TOUR and select the finest produce; join me in my kitchen and learn RECIPES YOU CAN PREPARE BACK HOME; sit down at our dinner table and enjoy a well-earned feast! You may not know anything about Mexican cuisine today, but by the end of the class you will be an expert tortilla maker and a true, qualified MAIZTRO. Here in Mexico it’s all about variety. I’ve carefully designed the menu so guests can prepare everything back home, but we’ve also included several surprises (seasonal fruits and vegetables) which are sure to tantalize your taste buds. Surprises and menus vary slightly depending on the season, but this is what we usually offer: we teach our guests how to prepare handmade tortillas, tlacoyos, agua de jamaica, salsa de molcajete, guacamole, stuffed peppers and chocolate covered marzipans served with local fruit and coffee. Class also includes a brief Tequila tasting (blanco, reposado, and añejo), as well as three additional shots of your favorite tequila. During October and November we will also be teaching you how to set up your own Day of the Dead altar!!! *If the group consists of four people or more, my dear friend and chef extraordinaire, Clara Sanchez, will take the lead in the kitchen
I’ve been a traveler and a foodie all my life. My grandmother, bless her, taught me everything I now about Mexican cuisine; everything from how to stuff ancho peppers, to the most important leasson of them all: how to drink tequila. “Don’t drink it,” she said, “you have to close your eyes and kiss it!” Now, after many years of cooking for my family and friends, I want to go a step further and share my family secrets with the world—anyone who loves Mexico and its sweet, mouthwatering culture.
Guacamole, salsa de molcajete, chapulines, tlacoyos, atole, hot chocolate and obleas.
Tequila (blanco, reposado and añejo). Sangrita Cold hibiscus flower tea (agua de jamaica).
We provide transportation from the market to my home/kitchen.
First stop is Mercado de Coyoacán, one of the most colorful food markets in all the city. The tour will take us through several stands selling everything from local fruits and vegetables to mountains of mole and dried peppers. The tour includes various food samples and lasts around 1 hour. The second and final stop is my own home. Class takes place in the kitchen/ dinning room and lasts around 3 hours.
