An abundant land rich in Indigenous culture and food, Mexico is the home of a delicious cuisine. In this hands on workshop you will discover the exquisite flavours, textures and diversity of Mexican food and its origins.

With Matt’s guidance you will learn how to work with fresh seasonal ingredients, traditional spices and ancient grains to create authentic Mexican meals.

Join us for a cooking workshop with a difference. Immerse yourself in a new culture, explore new tastes and learn about the history and traditions of food from around the world. Each workshop is hands- on and you will cook a variety of different dishes.
