Fantastic cooking class today. I learned a lot about Oaxacan cuisine from Oscar with hands on experience, while having fun meeting fellow travelers and sharing tales. Oscar is clearly very knowledgeable, gentle and gave very good simple instructions. Loved the morning walk to the local...More

Chef Oscar's cooking classes are fantastic. We were lucky enough to only have four people in the class (apparently there are often more), and we made an amazing array of dishes, including two moles, four salsas, three types of tortilla, a delicious shrimp soup, avocado...More
