Ready to learn the art of Oaxacan cooking?

It's easy to arrange hands-on cooking classes with instruction in Spanish and English. Learn the entire process from beginning to end (de cabo a rabo). And if you want classes from locals en español, there are plenty of options, many of which are incorporated into Spanish education programs from the language schools. What's missing (so far) are classes taught in Spanish for nationals.

Tip - Learn which foods are actually more than 500 years old and the hallmarks of Mexico's indigenous cuisine.

How to Make the Best Mole Negro
Señora Soledad can make any of the dishes that give this southern Mexican state a place among the world's great cuisines -- tamales, pozole, chiles rellenos, estofado, and the chili-rich sauces that have earned Oaxaca the name "Land of the Seven Moles." But her specialty is the granddaddy of them all, a smoky-sweet chili-chocolate sauce the color of compost on a redwood forest floor: mole negro.
