By the end of the class, you will have a basic understanding of the rich culture that surrounds Yucatecan cuisine, and a full and happy stomach!
The Yucatan's rich history is fascinating, as the Spanish Conquistadors choose to make the jungle their home and brought along their recipes and techniques, many of which were influenced by the Moors and elements of the Ottoman Empire. These recipes left influences that can be tasted and seen everywhere in the Yucatan. The following hundreds of years brought other nations and their life-ways to the Yucatan, creating an unusual melting pot of the original food of the Maya, Spanish, French, Dutch, Cuban, Lebanese, and others, all bringing the flavors and techniques of their kitchens with them. In this class, learn why this has made the Yucatan something not be missed.
