Cooking Classes in Oaxaca

Let’s Explore Local Ingredients and the Markets of Oaxaca

Cooking Classes in Oaxaca. Nomad Cook

Our Cooking Classes in Oaxaca are a experience that all of our guests had enjoyed and loved. We take a social, cultural, and historical approach while we learn about the dishes and their origins. We are going to start at the local neighborhood market to buy the ingredients, then head home to prepare a hot drink and start cooking everything from scratch.

We have three menus: Nixtamal, Tortillas & Salsas, Vegan Moles, and Mexican Vegetarian Cooking Classes. In each one of them we are going to focus on the specifics of the food today, the social aspect and the food systems of Oaxaca, Mexico, and the rest of the world through history.

Join today and be part of the 5 star experience we have designed and curated for you.

Vegan & Vegetarian Cooking Classes

All Food Requirements and Restrictions Have a Spot Here

Cooking Class in Oaxaca: Nixtamal, Tortillas & Salsas

Learn how to make tortillas from scratch, the Nixtamal process, and Salsas to make a foundation for other meals like quesadillas or memelas. All-Hands-on-Deck cooking while we discuss the politics around food in Mexico and the US. All the classes are Vegan-Friendly, and include a visit to the market to buy our ingredients and learn about the sourcing and food systems of Oaxaca and Mexico. If you need the class to be gluten-free, please let me know in the checkout page.

Cooking Class in Oaxaca: Vegan Moles

Let’s prepare the traditional moles leaving out the lard and the chicken broth. The flavors of the peppers, seeds and fruits are the ones giving us the real taste of those delicious sauces. This class is Vegan, but it’s possible to add Vegetarian ingredients if you prefer. It also includes a visit to the market to buy the ingredients and learn about the sourcing and food systems of Oaxaca and Mexico. If you need the class to be gluten-free, please let me know in the checkout page.

Cooking Class: Vegetarian Mexican Cooking

Mexican food doesn’t have to include meat. From chiles rellenos to enchiladas, passing by soups and salsas. All of them can be prepared with a plant-based list of ingredients. Vegan options are available too. Like the other classes, this one also begins at the market to source the ingredients and to show you my neighborhood market 🙂

Where the Coking Classes Take Place?

We’re going to be cooking and sharing in my personal cooking space here in Oaxaca City. No agencies or companies run the classes. This is a self-managed and community-oriented project that aims to distribute the profits among the community.
