Casa Crespo is Oaxaca in its kitchen. Tradition lives there, where chef Oscar Carrizosa, (originally from the Mixteca region) mixes the ingredients of the 16 ethnicities of Oaxaca with the original seasoning that he inherited from his grandma. 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.

Pulque Tour Plus: Aguamiel Harvest in the Field with Zapotec Dinner

Pulque Tour Plus: Aguamiel Harvest in the Field with Zapotec Dinner

Even Oaxacans rarely if ever have an opportunity to accompany an indigenous family into the fields for the aguamiel harvest. And most, certainly of the middle classes, typically don’t ever have a chance to break bread with them. You do it all, learning about pulque first hand, assisting in the phases of production, and spending a couple of hours chatting, learning, eating and drinking, and listening to music, all right in their home alongside members of their family.

Don Rosalio Felix treated my family and myself with courtesy and a deep regard for someone seeking knowledge beyond cursory and superficial facts about the people, place and events at Monte Alban. Without reservation I recommend the operator of this tour. On a closing note, Mr. Felix even accommodated our need for cool refreshments on what was a hot and very sunny August day.

Mitla , Artesany and Mezcal Tour Private
"We had a great trip - first we visit a pottery - the one that for many is the mother of making this black pottery started here and it is now her family that runs the business. Sadly, no production at this time but it was clearly another quality then we have seen in the city. Second, we visit a textile artist (learned about making colours, spin the wool, making rugs and much more). The one we visit is a famous guy and he knew a lot and loved sharing. After that we visit first a Mezcal production that was of a good size that could show us every step of the prodution. Very interesting. Last, we visit a tiny family run production that was not producing anything just now, but the owner told us so much about producing mezcal and was very charming. The guide and the driver (two persons) made it a fun and interesting trip and as we had a full day with them, we got around many topics. We are very happy we decided on this tour specific and will recommend it to everyone. Thanks to both for making a great day!!!"..."
