Whip up dishes in Oaxaca
Once the centre of the Mixtec and Zapotec civilisations, the city of Oaxaca is one of the country’s most beautiful colonial towns. Famous for its cuisine, Oaxacan specialities range from delicious, rich and spicy sauces such as mole, to fried grasshoppers seasoned with onion and garlic. An excellent way to learn more is to take a cookery class. Visit a local market, where ingredients are tasted and bought, receive an informal lecture and then put on an apron and create a delicious five-course meal.
