What you'll do
This is the perfect cooking class for those who want to experience a real Yucatan dinner. You will learn about local ingredients, and cook with the ripest, most flavorful and most rare 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. 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. Meanwhile the panuchos, brazo de reina, cochinita pibil, guacamole, sopa de lima or other food gets close to be ready, Metzin will take some pictures of you doing all the hard work in the kitchen. We are sure you will be hungry as a delicious dinner will be served in the enchanting courtyard aside of the pool. Please take some pictures!
