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.

Tlacolula, Tlacochahuaya and Yagul Market Tour From Oaxaca

Tlacolula, Tlacochahuaya and Yagul Market Tour From Oaxaca

You will witness the wonderful construction of the seventeenth century, built by the Dominican Friars, in San Jerónimo Tlacochahuaya, where its kinship altars stand out with images of the Virgin of the Rosary, the Diseding, Mary, the Child and the Arcangel Gabriel. One of the most beautiful pictorial works is that of Saint Jerome of the indigenous painter Juan de Arrué, who is said to be his famous work. We visited the Archaeological Zone of Yagul, a city that flourished as an urban center after the dean of Monte Albán (800 years d.c.). Later after a short abandonment, Yagul resurfaced to become a city-state, in the Oaxaca Valley, which prevailed until shortly before the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors. In the end we visited Tlacolula, where we will walk through one of the most traditional tianguis in the country, one of the most complete and colorful in Oaxaca. This fascinating place is set on Sundays on the main street of the village.
