Full description
Start your experience in a Mexican contemporary designed cooking studio, located in the eclectic Roma Norte neighborhood. Enjoy a welcome refreshing “Agua Fresca”, coffee from selected Mexican coffee beans or a special infusion selection, while you prepare for the experience and learn about the history of Mexican cuisine. Then, experience barrio style living as you take a market tour (within walking distance) to Mercado de Medellín. Discover one of the main markets of the Roma Norte that is full of colors and flavors. Learn about the market's history, organization, and offering while touring some of their main halls. Enjoy a tasting from selected market stands and establishments. Savor quesadillas at an organic 'tortillería', made with native corn, where you can view the traditional nixtamalization process. Learn about different chili varieties at a chili stand and taste 100% raw cacao and hand-made artisanal chocolate from Oaxaca. Discover the flavor of exotic bugs including crickets, chicatana flying ant and chinicuil worm. Enjoy seasonal native fruits (mamey, chicozapote, tuna, etc.) and hand-crafted ice cream. Next, return to the cooking studio and enjoy a 4-course cooking class with selected traditional Mexican dishes that would allow the group to enjoy and discover Mexico’s gastronomy. For the First Course, learn how to prepare antojitos mexicanos with Mexican salsas, alongside street food appetizers (sopes) paired with 2 Mexican salsas (red molcajete sauce and green sauce). For the 2nd course, make Mextlapiques which have a prehispanic origin, consisting of a tamal without masa. Prepare a vegetable-only version covered with a hierbabuena sauce. After this, make white mole - a traditional dish of Mexico's central region that is eaten at celebrations and made with a mixture of light-colored ingredients including white pine nuts, almonds, peanuts, blonde raisins, and chile guero. White mole is served with chicken pieces, mushrooms or panela cheese. Follow this with pastel de elote, cornbread paired with water-based chocolate. Finally, enjoy the prepared dishes with a pairing of agua fresca, Mexican craft beer, Mezcal from Oaxaca and premium white or red wine from Valle de Parras.
