Highlights
    What to Expect
    Greet your knowledgeable guide at the atmospheric Galerias Vallarta Shopping Mall and climb aboard a comfortable minivan to journey to a bustling outdoor market. Converse with vendors as you peruse stalls laden with exotic produce and unfamiliar fruits. 
    Next, visit a local tortilla factory to purchase the dough needed for fresh tortillas. With bags bursting with fresh produce, journey to the house of the master chef to begin your culinary class. Depending on which day of the week it is, learn to make a delicious and distinct main course inspired by the gastronomic traditions of the region; regularly features dishes include salsa de molcajete (a smooth sauce of fresh and fiery chiles), tacos and fresh fish ceviche. If you cook mole poblano, learn about the 27-ingredient combination that composes this spectacular sauce. 
    Conclude your cooking with tequila and mezcal tasting session before sitting down to dine on the fruits of your labor. Converse with your companions and the chef as you enjoy the true taste of Mexico. Relax during the return journey to the tour’s original departure point.
