Mexican food has a big tradition of plant-based meals and soups

Share with your Friends

Mexican cuisine is famous in the world for its tradition. It’s a fusion of the ancestral ingredients and techniques and the influences of the colonizers from Spain. Then, later incorporated aspects from the Arabic and French gastronomy because of the immigration waves that arrived in Mexico. In this Vegetarian Mexican Cooking Class we are going to explore some of it.

We are going to meet at the local market. We will buy the ingredients we are going to use later for the cooking class. Then we’ll head to my cooking studio to get a deeper introduction to the ingredients and dishes we are going to prepare. Remember to contact me before booking your experience so that I can make the proper modifications to the menu according to your food restrictions or preferences. Once we are settled and refreshed with some fresh Aguas Frescas (flavored infused traditional drink) we are going to start preparing the food, I’ll assign to the participants different tasks and responsibilities in order to achieve our main goal; having our three-course-meal menu prepared. When the food is ready, we are going to share the table and finish the journey while enjoying the delicious things we worked on. Remember that some dishes could be modified to fit diet requirements like vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and others.

Ancestral Mexican Food is Vegan-Friendly

Ancestral food from Mexico is mostly plant-based. Its foundation is compound by a large variety of corn, beans, pepper, and other herbs like Quelites and flowers.

Even when Mexican food had significant influence from the Spanish colonization and gave birth to the gastronomy that we know today, we can replace all the ingredients that have an origin from animals. We can adapt many of the delicious dishes to requirements that need to avoid those ingredients.

If you have any questions about this, don’t hesitate to send me a message. Include all your doubts or concerns about the dishes and ingredients included in this workshop.

Covid Sanitary Measures

Due to the current pandemic we modified all the procedures to reduce the risk of SARS-CoV-2 virus spread in our facility. The priority is to protect everyone present.

According to the local sanitary regulations, these are the measures we’d be taking if you book a cooking class:

  • Instructor is fully vaccinated. If you’re not vaccinated we cannot take you into the cooking studio.
  • Groups will be maximum of 8 people.
  • Washing hands is mandatory before starting the activity.
  • All surfaces and cookware are disinfected before the class.
  • Doors and windows are open and fans help the air flow.
  • Face masks are mandatory at all times while cooking. We remove them only when we eat the food at the end of the class and distancing is properly set up.
