It´s the perfect place to get to know the flavors and aromas of Oaxacan food in the classes that Oscar gives. To taste a good cup of coffee or a hot chocolate at Casa Crespo while getting ready for your market tour is also a good start to approach Oaxacan cuisine. Oscar, who is very friendly, also shows how to smell and identify the aromas that come of the dishes. He presents menu options and the students decide what they would like to cook. There is no fixed menu. He teaches how to cook 3 types of tortillas, 3 types of salsa, an appetizer, soup, mole, dessert and drink. Dishes that strive to remain in the taste buds and memory of those who love good eating.

We are not doing the experience until it's totally safe for our guests to visit us. ​This workshop is quite interactive; you're going to actively participate in preparing the food we all are going to eat. Either you're a beginner in the kitchen or a master chef. The only thing I ask is that you're passionate about cooking. I'll share with you some stories, especially from my scouting and exploration of the state of Oaxaca, mainly from La Mixteca and the Central Valley regions. Finally, we all are going to enjoy the meals we cooked, I'll show you a couple of techniques to make your food look fantastic with little effort (food love starts with the sight!) Mexican food, thus, Oaxacan cuisine has a significant foundation on corn, so we are going to learn about this cornerstone ingredient of the local gastronomy. One important topic that will be covered it's the Nixtamal process, which is the ​cornerstone of Mexican gastronomy and culture.
