Following a sunset reception on arrival and a market orientation the next day, our village sessions feature five full menus that form a veritable encyclopedia of Mexican cooking. Participants cook each morning in our beautifully appointed local kitchen, feast each afternoon on their own work, and spend the afternoons and evenings in a rich array of leisure and cultural activities. There is plenty of free time to take in the natural beauty of the surroundings, as well as to visit local homes where we sample the fare of other cooks. Each Cocinar Mexicano village workshop begin or ends with a day of curated dining and culinary sightseeing in Mexico City, with meals at our affiliated restaurants and a Q & A with the chefs. Our base in Mexico City is the splendid JW Marriott, one of country's top-rated hotels.
Excursions to nearby museums and archeological sites, along with optional recreational activities such as swimming, hiking, yoga, adobe sweat baths and massage, complete what promises to be an unforgettable experience in one of Mexico's officially designated "magical villages."
