This is the perfect cooking class for those wanting to experience an authentic Yucatan dinner. You will learn all about local ingredients, cooking with the ripest, most flavorful and rarest of all. Ever heard of achiote, zapote, flor de calabaza? We will explain all about them and let you taste so much more.
Hands will be ready on chopping, slicing and mixing ingredients. 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 Xtabentún?" Ai! We forgot the buy the chaya, no problem, we will harvest it fresh out of the garden.
While the Panuchos, Brazo de Reina, Cochinita Pibil, Guacamole, Sopa de Lima or any of the delicious dishes we prepare are ready, our very own Metzin will take some pictures of you doing all the hard work in the kitchen so you can take the memories back home.
We are sure you will be hungry as a delicious dinner will be served in the enchanting courtyard beside the pool.
Please take some pictures!
