Authentic Mexican Cooking Class
Here at Food at 52 we pride ourselves on authenticity and attention to detail, which is why we start our Mexican cooking class by heading straight to the heart of Mexico’s culinary action, west of the Yucatan peninsula. Merida, the capital, and the mostly undiscovered town of Campeche offer Mexican cuisine that is entirely different from our high-street, carbed-up Tex-Mex versions.
We have handpicked our favourite Mexican dishes to bring you a true Yucatan feast using the best and freshest Mexican ingredients. We will show you how to make a flavoursome red marinade with anchiote paste (made of annatto seeds) and sour orange.
For our antojitos (little whims) you will become an expert at making your own corn tortillas, pico de gallo salsa, zingy seafood ceviche (on the full day) and of course the classic guacamole.
From the heart of Mexico City we will create the refried black beans to accompany the Pibil - this is based on a traditional underground cooking technique used all over the Yucatan, where we will wrap fish, chicken or pumpkin in banana leaf.
Book several classes with us and make your own flexible cookery course!
