Then, walk to the Mercado de Medellín and learn about the market's history and organization while touring some of their main halls. 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, etc.) and hand-crafted ice cream. Next, return to the cooking studio and prepare tacos al pastor (pork), tacos de barbacoa (beef), tacos campechanos (beef and pork), three Mexican salsas, and hand-made tortillas.

Una experiencia muy chula

January 24, 2023


We had a wonderful morning with Val, Pame and their team of folks in the studio, market and tortillerias. Everyone was super friendly and knowledgeable,band the street food vendors cooked up such delicious treats for us! The market was fascinating - all the different fruits and veg and sheets of pork crackling! And then the experience of making our salsas, meat fillings and then the joys of wrapping up our tacos - a superb experience highly recommended.
