Oaxaca: Take a Mexican cooking course

Visit Us

Take a Mexican cooking course

Mexican food is enjoyed across the world, renowned for its comforting qualities and fresh, intense flavours. For Mexicans themselves, nowhere better encapsulates the cuisine's complexity and rich variety of ingredients than Oaxaca, home of a celebrated gastronomic scene and a number of unique regional specialities.

At a local cooking school in the heart of the colonial city, you will have the chance to discover traditional Oaxacan cuisine and follow recipes passed down through the generations. To understand the provenance of the ingredients you'll first visit a colourful local market to select fresh produce direct from local vendors. After a short, informative talk on Oaxacan food, you'll then head into the kitchen to prepare a delicious 4-course meal under expert tuition.
