COOKING CLASSES

WELCOME ! MY NAME IS ALFONSO

Oaxaca is very rich in traditions, culture and festivities. Also it is well know for its tasty and exotic food. I have a degree in Spanish  language education and have studied traditional Mexican cuisine almost my entire life. My love for food began cooking with my parents, grand mom and lady cookers with tradition  (cocineras tradicionales) from my hometown when i was a young child. I have got more experience in Mexican cuisine from past employments in different restaurants across the city, especially Oaxacan cuisine. Oaxacan cuisine is well known for its unique, warm flavors and foods. And Mexicans are known for their rich culture, timeless traditions, and friendliness. I can’t wait to share my kitchen and my heritage with you during your special visit in Oaxaca.

Schedule:  CLASSES AVAILABLE FROM MONDAY  TO  FRIDAY. ( 9:30am to 3:00pm.) 9:30 am Meet up Time.

The meet up is in the center city ( I will send you the exact location with your reservation).  Visit the market in the center of the city. Well, the class starts with the visit to the market, all markets in Oaxaca city are so colorful. While we explore around some areas in the market we will pick up the freshest and more traditional ingredients in Oaxaca. 10:20 a.m.

Drive to my kitchen studio. (NEW LOCATION FOR THE COOKING CLASSES) After picking up everything we need from the market, we will drive directly to my kitchen ( it is in the second floor of my home ) which is 10 minutes outside of the city. Here, I will teach you how to prepare the dishes you’ve selected from the list of menu; explaining each step so you can take the tools and techniques learned in class back to your own kitchen. You will prepare the dishes as a group, each person sharing responsibility for different steps in preparation of the meals. Complimentary mezcal and beer are available. Don´t worry if you are a not experience cooker, you will do it great. Me and my family are friendly so please feel free like your home. Feel free to take photos, to take notes about all the dishes, but don´t worry  I will send you the recipes of all dishes by email after the class. 2:30 pm Class ends. Class typically ends by around 2:30 pm to 3:00pm and I will drive you back to the city center.  What will you cook?  You will cook one appetizer, salsas, a main dish, and a dessert.  Are vegetarian and vegan options available? The answer is YES! Some of the best dishes can be made vegetarian/vegan with advance notice.
