Ancestral cooking class with market visit

You will be in a rural Zapotec Community, especially indigenous villages, households still depend heavily on these foods with few changes in how they are grown, mostly on small plots. The cooking here retains much of its indigenous flavor, such as dishes prepared without fat (unknown before the arrival of the Spanish) and the use of the valley's abundance of vegetables and herbs especially in its moles. You can have a taste of Mole, Tamales, food is basase in Native corn ans in local products.Various insects are consumed in the state including ants and grubs from maguey plants but the best known of these is grasshoppers, called chapulines.Grasshoppers that are consumed are collected from corn and alfalfa fields. They are semi-domesticated, living longer and reproducing at higher rates than those living in wild areas. The most common way to eat them is fresh off the comal and with a tortilla.

    The market is one of the most popular places for visitors to Oaxaca, and for good reason.The local market is a traditional tianguis that has been taking place since Zapotec and Mixtec times, probably since the Spanish relocated the inhabitants. We will be able to buy all local and fresh ingredients for our dishes, remeber we do not hve a especificalmenu , because al dishes depends of the season of the year , market on Sundays is awash with fantastic food, colourful artisans and plants, dried chillies and seeds and pretty much anything else you can imagine.
