Casa Crespo is a cooking school devoted exclusively to Oaxacan cuisine and its regional ingredients.
The classes at Casa Crespo are designed for people who like culinary arts and learning about new cultures. Every class begins with coffee, hot chocolate, marmalade and bread, and ends with a fabulous meal that you have prepared under the guidance of chef Carrizosa. As this takes place, you will receive information about Oaxacan cooking, its development, the importance it holds in national gastronomy and its contribution to world ingredients.
From the start, chef Oscar Carrizosa offers the menu options and the students choose which dishes to prepare. In this way, there is no set meal, making the culinary experience at Casa Crespo always unique.

We booked online knowing nothing about this class and it was a complete fantastic surprise. We met great people and Oscar was a fabulous teacher.
We had a great time with Oscar, we were the only people who had booked so ended up with a private class! Covering a huge amount of dishes, Oscar even threw in a few more with some ingredients they had spare in the fridge. Would highly recommend, a fantastic way to learn about the food, ingredients and dishes of Oaxaca!
Oscar is evidently a very talented chef and the recipes we made during our class were absolutely delicious. I loved that Oscar chatted to us at the beginning of the class and went through the varieties of meals we had the options of cooking, so we could choose exactly what we wanted to make from an extensive repertoire. For a short day class we made an impressive number of dishes.
Oscar was awesome! We made several dishes and at the end of the class, all the students sat down and ate together. The class was fun and informative and we made some great new friends.
The class was really engaging and Oscar was very knowledgeable . Overall a great place to check out if you are interested in learning about Oaxacan cuisine.
The trip to the market to get ingredients was informative and a lot of fun. There were a lot of unique dishes to cook and all around a very hands on class.
Very hands on class. I really enjoyed being shown around the market and the mole was incredible!
Loved the market and the fact the menu wasn’t set. Oscar was very good
