A group of no more than 12 people will meet at the location, a beautiful restaurant in San Angel, for a two hour long hands-on cooking class. After having a few introductory remarks from the chef, she will lead the group on a walk to the San Jacinto market, a typical Mexican market 1 block from the restaurant. There, the chef will explain a little bit about some of the typical Mexican ingredients used for cooking, allowing them to ask questions to the owners of the stands. After this short excursion, which will last no more than 20 minutes, the group will walk back to the restaurant, where each pair will have their own cooking station, complete with utensils, burner, and the ingredients necessary for the menu that will be cooked. The chef will then proceed to guide them through the cooking process. Afterwards, the guests will be able to sit down at their stations and eat what they have prepared. Throughout the experience, the chef will be sharing anecdotes about the surrounding neighborhood.
