Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

I would like to share the colors, tastes and flavors of the traditional Mexican home cuisine. The Mexican gastronomy is made of an immense diversity of cultures. The variety of ingredients and flavors are awesome and never stops surprising us. The history behind every recipe is amazing and the combination between indigenous cultures and Spanish influence give us an invaluable experience.
This experience is a friends reunion. Everybody will experience how to prepare a traditional Mexican meal with quesadillas, gorditas, tlacoyos as appetizers. You also learn how to prepare the main salsas and guacamole that accomplish al the dishes and their different processes using a “molcajete"(green sauce, red sauce, guacamole, pico de gallo, habanero sauce). The experience includes a lesson to prepare your own hand-made tortillas. Then we'll have a testing of “tacos” of the special main dishes (cochinita pibil, robalo al pastor, romeritos, pollo c/mole) prepared at the restaurant.
While we cook, you will learn about history, indigenous vegetables, dried chiles and native corn.
The reunion is complete by a taste of beverages with season fruit water (aguas frescas) original mezcal from Oaxaca state, craft beer and mexican wine.
As a dessert we'll have craft ice cream and sorbets from Cuernavaca Morelos.
You will arrive as a stranger and leave as a friend.

I´m the founder of a restaurant in Mexico City. In one of the most popular neighborhoods. I have a degree in communication, journalism and advertising. I been working in restaurant business for more than 15 years. We prepare popular home made meals, with original processes and ingredients. Our cooks are called “MAYORAS” and it refers to the women that learn how to cook from their parents, their grandparents and the place where they born. They come from different parts of the country, Oaxaca, Chiapas and Puebla. They teach me all the secrets about traditional cook. In our place you will be able to taste dishes that people eat at their homes every day and also the special dishes that are representatives of different states all over the country. For us, the work in restaurant means share culture, history and tradition

This was such a wonderful experience! Haz and the Mayoras shared their knowledge generously and were warm and welcoming hosts. She started with a wonderfully detailed review of all the ingredients we would be using — a wide array of chiles, corn, greens, and more. I learned to make tortillas, tlayocos, sopes, and salsas and learned how the other foods we ate were made. I’ll definitely be coming back to her restaurant next time I’m in Mexico City!

I cannot say enough about the Cooking with Mayores experience. We have taken cooking classes all over the world and this ranks with the very best. Haz was a wonderful host providing the cultural context for our experience. She started the class with detailed explanations of the key ingredients of Mexican cooking. Her knowledge was deep and we learned so much. She introduced us to each of the mayores who demonstrated their specialties. We prepared and ate so many things that I cannot recall all the dishes. They represented the full range of the specialties of Mexican home cooking. As the Mayores came from different states, the dishes represented a large range of home cooking. We were then served 4 main courses that we only had room to taste. The food was wonderful and the mole the best we have eaten during our month in Mexico. Haz was an amazingly generous host making sure our beverages were constantly refreshed and that all of our needs and dietary restrictions were met. We shared stories and experiences and left feeling like we had a new friend. We cannot recommend this experience strongly enough. Just don't eat anything before you comr!

We absolutely adored our cooking class! Everything was delicious and there was so much food! I couldn’t believe how difficult it was to make a tortilla, but the effort was definitely worth it. I am so glad we decided to book this experience. It was truly like being in your friends kitchen for a few hours.

The cooking class was an incredible way to learn not only more about the ways people in Mexico prepare traditional tortillas and dishes, but also to learn more about the history of Mexican cultures and the stories behind the city’s development. They were very knowledgeable not only about the food we cooked, but gave many recommendations for our next trip back! It’s clear that they are passionate about their work and they made us feel like a true friend by the end of the class. I would highly recommend!
