Flavors of Oaxaca: Cooking Class with No Set Menu and Local Market Tour

Flavors of Oaxaca: Cooking Class with No Set Menu and Local Market Tour

star-5

Casa Crespo is Oaxaca in its kitchen. Tradition lives there, where chef Oscar Carrizosa, (originally from the Mixteca region) mixes the ingredients of the 16 ethnicities of Oaxaca with the original seasoning that he inherited from his grandma. It´s the perfect place to get to know the flavors and aromas of Oaxacan food in the classes that Oscar gives. To taste a good cup of coffee or a hot chocolate at Casa Crespo while getting ready for your market tour is also a good start to approach Oaxacan cuisine. Oscar, who is very friendly, also shows how to smell and identify the aromas that come of the dishes. He presents menu options and the students decide what they would like to cook. There is no fixed menu. He teaches how to cook 3 types of tortillas, 3 types of salsa, an appetizer, soup, mole, dessert and drink. Dishes that strive to remain in the taste buds and memory of those who love good eating.

We pass by you directly from the hotel, it is a door to door service, without more people. In case of requiring more time the extra hours have an additional cost.

Walk and discover the side of Puerto that tourists rarely see: real food, real people, real passion. If you are planning to go to Puerto Escondido this tour is a must. Why? Firstly, because you will discover the most “local” part of Puerto, where the locals actually eat, shop and live (far from the touristic beach sector). Secondly, because it’s got all the basics you need to know about Oaxaca’s food culture, this tour is packed with Mexican specialties and unique experiences to make you feel like a true Puerto local by the end of it (and for sure know the difference between a normal local cheese and the “Oaxacan” cheese one). Thirdly, it’s simply delicious So, if you feel hungry for Oaxacan cuisine, thirsty for cultural knowledge, and adventurous for an exciting walk – this tour is for you

We are not doing the experience until it's totally safe for our guests to visit us. ​This workshop is quite interactive; you're going to actively participate in preparing the food we all are going to eat. Either you're a beginner in the kitchen or a master chef. The only thing I ask is that you're passionate about cooking. I'll share with you some stories, especially from my scouting and exploration of the state of Oaxaca, mainly from La Mixteca and the Central Valley regions. Finally, we all are going to enjoy the meals we cooked, I'll show you a couple of techniques to make your food look fantastic with little effort (food love starts with the sight!) Mexican food, thus, Oaxacan cuisine has a significant foundation on corn, so we are going to learn about this cornerstone ingredient of the local gastronomy. One important topic that will be covered it's the Nixtamal process, which is the ​cornerstone of Mexican gastronomy and culture.
