This is the perfect cooking class for those who want to go to a small but special market (where many of Mérida top restaurant chefs shop), learn about local ingredients and pick out the ripest, most flavorful and most rare. Ever heard of Zapote, Mamey, Achiote? We will explain all about them and let you taste so much more.
Then back to the beautiful colonial style hotel for hands-on chopping, slicing, and mixing.
This is the time to test the chef with questions like: "what is the secret of a good guacamole?" or "what is the difference between tequila and mezcal?", "Can I have a Xtabentum?"
Ai! We forgot the buy the Chaya. No problem, we will harvest it fresh out of the garden.
Meanwhile the panuchos, brazo de reina, cochinita, guacamole, sopa de lima or other food gets close to be ready, Ana, our charming hostess, took some pictures of you doing all the hard work in the kitchen.
We are sure you will be hungry as a delicious meal will be served in the enchanting courtyard aside of the pool. Please take some pictures!
