Together, let’s incorporate the fresh produce of your region into your daily eating habits.
In two fully-customized sessions we’ll explore up to 12 ingredients
or, if it's your preference, we'll do a deep dive into just a few.
The aim is to get you familiarized and comfortable with the best ingredients of your region, how to substitute them in recipes you know and like, and according to your dietary needs, habits and preferences.
It was the proverbial first step in a journey of a thousand menus!
"The session was a great start to get us into local (Oaxacan) ingredients. It was the proverbial first step in a journey of a thousand menus! The day before we had visited a tianguis (street market) and came back with an assortment of somewhat-randomly chosen fruits, chiles, and vegetables. Marget went through them, telling us their uses and how best to select them next time around. The highlight was the stove-top part of the session, where Margret led us in making an impromptu dish from many of the ingredients. She had us roast onions, garlic, several different chiles, and a variety of the vegetables, and then blend them into a salsa verde -- and her suggestion to add pepitas made it perfect. This went over roasted nopales and miniature squash with a Oaxacan cheese topping, making a delicious lunch. The time was well-used but never rushed. Margret was an excellent guide: friendly, encouraging, and making us feel immediately at ease. We're looking forward to getting some cookware she recommended, making another trip to the market, and doing another session."
Sessions will take place from your own kitchen over Zoom.
