Casa Crespo is Oaxaca in its kitchen. Tradition lives there, where chef Oscar Carrizosa, (originally from the Mixteca region) mixes the ingredients of the 16 ethnicities of Oaxaca with the original seasoning that he inherited from his grandma. It´s the perfect place to get to know the flavors and aromas of Oaxacan food in the classes that Oscar gives. To taste a good cup of coffee or a hot chocolate at Casa Crespo while getting ready for your market tour is also a good start to approach Oaxacan cuisine. Oscar, who is very friendly, also shows how to smell and identify the aromas that come of the dishes. He presents menu options and the students decide what they would like to cook. There is no fixed menu. He teaches how to cook 3 types of tortillas, 3 types of salsa, an appetizer, soup, mole, dessert and drink.

We are not doing the experience until it's totally safe for our guests to visit us. ​This workshop is quite interactive; you're going to actively participate in preparing the food we all are going to eat. Either you're a beginner in the kitchen or a master chef. The only thing I ask is that you're passionate about cooking. I'll share with you some stories, especially from my scouting and exploration of the state of Oaxaca, mainly from La Mixteca and the Central Valley regions. Finally, we all are going to enjoy the meals we cooked, I'll show you a couple of techniques to make your food look fantastic with little effort (food love starts with the sight!) Mexican food, thus, Oaxacan cuisine has a significant foundation on corn, so we are going to learn about this cornerstone ingredient of the local gastronomy. One important topic that will be covered it's the Nixtamal process, which is the ​cornerstone of Mexican gastronomy and culture.

Enjoy this tour in private service, with what we can enjoy in a more personal way, the fantastic places that this route offers. The advantages of a private tour is that you traveled alone in the vehicle, can be added to the food or visit somewhere nearby, as long as it does not exceed the contracted time. We pass by you directly from the hotel, it is a door to door service, without more people. In case of requiring more time the extra hours have an additional cost.

One of them older than any city in Northamerica (our county sit town). A second one the origen of coffee in the State of Oaxaca, Pluma coffee is ranked top gourmet in the world. The trird one is our beatiful ecological minded town nice view point and explenation of its origen.

He is very proud to explain the biodiversity of Huatulco and how this world class gourmet coffee comes to be. And he is supporting the local people by bringing you to Doña Alfonsina who plants, grows, picks, and roasts this coffee. Unlike any other experience. The Sierra Madre setting is unbelievable and the coffee out of this world. So happy to have met these people and see a glimpse into their artesanal work and passions.
