    What to Expect
    We will start your experience with a welcome "agua fresca" while learning about the history of Mexican cuisine.

    Then we will share with you detailed explanations of recipes and ingredients to be ready to head to the kitchen for a hands-on cooking experience.

    We will prepare street appetizers with two Mexican salsas, squash blossom salad, hand-made tortillas, mole blanco and corn bread

    Afterwards, enjoy the lunch you've prepared with a pairing of artisanal mezcal, Mexican craft beer or Mexican wine.

    Finish your experience with a high note of hot chocolate and dessert.
