    What to Expect
    In a beautiful Mexican-style house, surrounded by gardens, our Culinary Experience starts off with a brief introduction to the essential flavors and ingredients of Aztec, Maya and Mexican cuisine and all you ever wanted to know about the trademark of our cuisine: tacos!!

    We will also do a mezcal tasting so you can learn how to drink it properly.

    Then, we will prepare a full 3-course menu with sides: soup, main dish, dessert, salsa, tortillas, quesadillas and agua fresco. We try to always use traditional utensils, like metate and molcajete. Many of the dishes you will learn and cook come from my own family’s cookbook, with the intention of preserve and share the authentic traditional mexican food! The preparation of tortillas and quesadillas is from scratch, so you can make them at home anytime you want a real taco!

    By the end of the class, we sit down, family-style, to share the food and the experience itself,all the while enjoying a jarrito de agua fresca or beer or wine … or a bit of each!

    This all happens in an ambiance full of joy, music and laughter, recreating the sense of fellowship and warmth of cooking at home with friends.
