DAY 4
San Miguel de Allende

Start with a market tour where you will have a chance to meet local vendors, most of them women farmers from San Miguel de Allende´s surrounding countryside, who each day bring to the market what they have personally grown or produced – local vegetables, fruits, fresh and dried herbs, fresh cheeses, flowers, and fresh and dried chiles. After this vivid introduction to the abundance of local produce you will be ready for your cooking class where you will learn how basic ingredients can be used in creative and delicious ways. Hosted in Chef Paco Cardenas´ home, this is a hands-on class offers a chance for every participant to help prepare authentic Mexican dishes from scratch. Tie on an apron and get ready to start making salsas from different chiles and vegetables. You will also prepare dishes with the produce purchased from the market, perhaps nopales, squash blossoms, chiles poblanos, chayotes, or cuitlacoche, depending on what is in season. Chef Paco will also show you how to make sopecitos or tortillas with fresh homemade corn dough from real nixtamal. After the work in the kitchen, sit down, relax and enjoy the lunch you have prepared. You will receive a recipe packet for note taking. (B,L)
