Cooking Classes

Cooking classes from the Isthmus with a Tehuana

Hi I’m Betsaida originally from the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, Oaxaca, I want to invite you to my house to get to know and cook food from the Isthmus, which is part of the Oaxacan gastronomy. I’ll teach you to cook the most traditional & outstanding dishes that I’ve learnt through generations in my family. It’s no necessary to have cooking skills, but come ready to get fun, cook and eat.

Firstly, we’ll meet on a specific point, we’ll go to a local market to get the freshest ingredients that we’ll cook according to the day’s menu. Then, we’ll go to my house where I’ll teach you to make all the dishes from start to end. After that, we’ll eat & enjoy together all the food we cooked, we’ll enjoy it with artisanal mezcales, fresh waters, beers, mezcal cocktails. At the end of the class I’ll drop you off to your hotel.
