A Day’s Cooking Class
We are really pleased to have arranged this day of cooking Oaxaca style with the Cheff Gerardo.
He is utterly sincere about bringing his art in its richest and most authentic form to those who would love to learn something of this magnificient cuisine.
Be prepared for a gastronomic delight! Vegetarians and dietary requirements catered for.
Normally we begin by visiting the La Merced market where we look for the ingredients on our shopping list and identify other ingredients representative of the region.
Music included in the market
Generally we will try to make two types of tortillas, three salsas, an appetizer, soup and one of the many possible “moles” – these are an intrinsic part of Mexican cooking and very important to understanding the cuisine of the region. We’ll round up by making guacamole and a dessert. We spend much of the day chatting and exchanging anecdotes with lots of fun and laughter.
Once we’ve finished cooking, we’ll lay the table and sit down to appreciate our culinary creations.
