The Mexican Cooking Classes & Market Tour.

These Mexican cooking classes offer an insider’s look at the local Benito Juarez Market in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca. We start the day at a local comedor / Mexican diner for Oaxacan breakfast and freshly squeezed juice. In the market, we experience the sights, sounds, and smells while exploring and shopping for local ingredients. We check out the unique chiles native to Oaxaca. Learn how to buy, prepare and utilize them. After we tour the market we head into the kitchen to prepare a sumptuous multiple course lunch in the Mexican cooking class. *

We usually prepare two salsas, ceviche, guacamole, a few of the possibilities for the main course are; mole amarillo, mole verde, chiles rellenos or home-style carnitas. In addition to veggies, rice, beans, fresh fruits, cheese, agua fresca and dessert.

Plus ice cold Mexican beers and a rare mezcal from Sola de Vega.

*Private Cooking Classes can be tailored to your dietary needs.

Mi misión imposible: El mole

Un desafío más me esperaba en Puerto Escondido: aprender a hacer mole. Igual que con el surf, que nunca me imaginé capaz de practicar, jamás pensé que podría pasar de abrir un frasco de mole y agregarle caldo, a prepararlo desde cero.

“No sé por qué a este platillo le llaman mole amarillo; es más bien rojizo y anaranjado”, me comentó mientras salíamos al patio a cortar hoja santa para saltear el camarón. Todo fluía en esta cocina: los frijoles negros y el arroz estuvieron listos a tiempo, y me reí para mis adentros cuando me imaginé intentando lo mismo en mi cocina. Mejor disfrutar de este momento, y de la cremosa y tibia salsa de mole vertida sobre los jugosos camarones; una delicia con la nota picante perfecta.

“Invigorated by having successfully
flown across water on a board, I was
ready for my next challenge: making
mole. I headed to the market in Puerto
Escondido to meet my mole instructor,
Tony. First, he took me shopping, intently
examining each chili [sic]and vegetable.
In his personal kitchen, he chopped and
stirred and mixed away—everything
just flowed naturally, and I chuckled
just thinking about attempting this on
my own. Better just enjoy this moment,
I thought, as the creamy mole sauce
poured over the shrimp. And I did.”
