Learn to Cook Yucatecan Classics with Locals in a Private Merida Home

Your local hosts Daniel and Julieta offer an interactive hands-on cooking lesson where you will help them prepare 2-3 dishes from scratch before you get to enjoy the authentic homemade meal together at their dining table. First, you will prepare guacamole or sikil pak (a pumpkin seed dip), so you have something to snack on as you cook! As your class proceeds, you will learn about local ingredients and cooking techniques while you help Daniel prepare a cactus salad, homemade tortillas and pollo pibil chicken wrapped in banana leaves. The experience takes place in Julieta’s lovely restored Merida home - colorful, art-filled and spacious with grand rooms and an external courtyard! Her lovely home is easily accessible and conveniently located near the city center.  Please note that the kitchen will be used for the final cooking process and most of the prep work will be done in the hall or dining room, as it is much cooler in there.
