Vegetarian Mexican Cooking Class

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.

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’ll 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.

Learn how to make your own Mexican food at home without sacrificing the taste

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.

If you have a group of 2 or more people. We can open a class for you. Send Us a Message to check availability

Mole negro preparation. Nomad Cook

Let’s prepare the traditional moles of Oaxaca (Mole Negro, Pipian, Amarillo, Coloradito) 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 the moles.
