One person I forgot to include in my trip report (my apologies!) is Monica of Patio Mexica Cooking School.

We arrived on a Tuesday and took her cooking class the next morning. What a treat!!

The class is 3 hours - Monica takes you to the farmers market on Cocos street and other stores along the way. What an education in local produce!

Then back to the restaurant where we grilled vegetables, made salsas (rojo & verde) using the traditional "rock" method of grinding the veggies. Monica prepared a frijoles dish and a cactus dish that were to die for!

If you like to cook and are interested on learning more about the local cuisine, we highly recommend her class!
