What you'll do
The first step will be to show you the ingredients that you can find in all Oaxacan homes, one of the advantages of our experience is that we have a garden with herbs and organic chilis. Because the best way to learn is by tasting, we will offer a snack that will include chicharron, cheese, quesillo, chapulines, and a mezcalito. Have you heard anything about the metate and how tortillas are made by hand? Here we will explain to you step by step and best of all you will have the opportunity to make them yourself. One of my specialties is sauces made in a molcajete and they will be perfect to accompany a delicious Oaxacan barbecue that includes jerky, cecina enchilada, chorizo, grilled water chilis, memelitas, fresh beans and a lot of guacamole. The mole is the emblem of our cuisine and we will make one of the 7 Oaxacan moles. You can choose a dessert like arroz con leche, flan or lechecilla. Not forgetting fresh fruit water made with seasonal fruit. Everyone will participate in the different processes, cutting ingredients from the garden, making sauces and of course eating. Remember, when you visit a house in Oaxaca you have to come with an empty stomach.
My name is Sonia and since I was a child I had a great passion for traditional Oaxacan cuisine, and not only because I was born in this beautiful land, but also because I am very proud to have learned from the best cooks in the region. My mother always told me that the only way to cook is in clay pots and on charcoal, since then I have followed her advice. I have attained baking diplomas and I make cakes with organic eggs and fresh butter. I would love to receive you in my home and share the knowledge I have obtained over all these years. Welcome!
