We shopped the market with Esperanza in the morning, traveled to her kitchen, and proceeded to make tortillas, guacamole, empanadas, salsas, and chicken mole. I think I left something out too! How many classes have you been in where beer and mezcal are not just provided but encouraged? Agustin provided the English translations for our group. Esperanza and Blanca stuck... 更多
Augustin accommodated us during Dios de los Muertos - and I'm so grateful. This was such a great experience. And the Colorado mole we made - oh my tasty goodness. The walk through the market with Esperanza was really fun, mezcal flows freely while you cook, the food so so good. Don't hesitate to book this.
We had a really great time learning about Oaxacan style cooking in this class run by Esperanza. We had read reviews that raved about a class that combines cooking but in a casual setting with drinks and it certainly lived up to it! The highlight was the mole rojo where 25 ingredients are used to create an amazing dish over... 更多
I will not repeat the notes many have left about the narrow stairs, standing all day and walking through the market. It is all fantastic. Esperanza imparts a lot of knowledge as she takes you through the market and all the day long as she cooks non-stop. Cooking these traditional Oaxacan pre-Hispanic dishes gives you such a better understanding and... 更多
I had such a great time at this cooking class. I was solo but met some fantastic people and we all had so much fun we went out afterward in the center. The mole was incredible and the drinks were included. Fun way to spend thanksgiving day cooking mole in Oaxaca!
We had a great time with Esperanza learning how to cook Mexican food. The day started with a tour of the local market where Esperanza picked up a few items and ushered us to some samples. We then went to her kitchen and started the cooking! Our menu included a red and green salsa, guacamole, 3 types of tortillas and... 更多
Stop looking right now!!!! You just found the coolest cooking class in Oaxaca! Me and my girlfriend booked cooking classes without having any expectations in particular. We communicated through emails and the only thing we knew was that Esperanza was picking us up the next day to go visit the market and buy the ingredients that we were going to... 更多
What a fun day! We met Esperanza at the zocolo market to purchase our ingredients and she explained all about those as well as other cultural things at the market. We had a short drive back to the class and met Agustin and Blanca who was also helping in the class. It was like being invited to someone's home to... 更多
Pros: - Lots of food (tortillas, salsa, guacamole, quesadillas, tacos, mole) - Esparanza is a sweetheart - Beer and mezcal included - Quick email correspondence Cons: - Make sure you confirm/understand meeting location - we were confused by the location, called, and told to pay for a cab to get there. We then sat for 40mns and missed the market... 更多
My wife and I took this class mid September, on her 40th birthday. I had surprised her with the trip, and set this up ahead of time. Agustin was very good about communicating via e-mail and making sure that I had all the details ahead of time. Esperanza met us at our hotel (Casa de Siete Balcones - something else... 更多
