Cooking demonstration and tasting dinner at the Mexican Cultural Institute.
The Yucatan Peninsula is known as the culinary outlier in Mexico because it boasts a cuisine so distinct from the rest of the country that it occupies its own universe of flavors. Explore how a pumpkin seed sauce can enhance regular enchiladas, savor Venison marinated in a Bitter Orange sauce and learn why there is a dessert called “Poor Gentleman” that can make anyone a wealthy patron.
