Renata grew up surrounded by Puebla's rich food culture. Her grandmothers both cooked 'cocina poblana' and her father owned the first restaurant in town to elevate Poblano cooking to a higher level of sophistication. Renata now owns two restaurants herself which both celebrate the food she grew up eating. Her newest venture is called Santo Chancho which features Renata's take on Southern American barbecue served with a Poblano twist.
Join renata in her kitchen where she will teach you to prepare two Poblano dishes during your hands-on lesson. You can expect the cooking lesson to last about an hour and a half.
Enjoy a traditional Poblano meal featuring some of Renata's favorite local dishes. She might prepare a fresh ceviche to start before moving on to main dishes such as enfrijoladas (a tortilla stuffed with beans, chicken, avocado, onion and sour cream), cemitas (a typical Poblano sandwich filled with cheese, ham, avocado and a chipotle chili sauce), or you might sample enmoladas (rolled and lightly fried tortillas stuffed with chicken or cheese, topped with a savory cocoa mole and sprinkled with sesame seeds). Your meal will be served with a variety of fresh salsas to accompany the dishes. For dessert Renata offers traditional Poblano sweets and seasonal fruit.
Please note: this is not a professional cooking class, rather than an experience to visit an authentic, local home to meet a local person and share the culture and cuisine together.
