About Our Timeless Cuisine Tour

Visit a traditional village market and taste mole, chocolate, and mezcal!

Though there is good food in the fine restaurants of Oaxaca city, our favorite food comes from the humble eateries and village kitchens of rural Oaxaca. Oaxacan chocolate, mezcal, and mole are grand examples of the timeless foods of Oaxaca Valley. And they are the focus of our trip today.

Hopping from village to Zapotec village on back roads in the Tlacolula valley, go far beyond the tourist routes and into the real thing, visiting artisanal food workshops and mama’s kitchens flavored with the smoky seasoning of a cooking fire. On the trail of essential Oaxacan treats, we wind our way into the villages and homes that give flavor to this delicious land.
