Traditional gastronomic tour
These tours are divided into 3 major themes. The Tour of the Maxán (sheet with which they cover and cook several types of tamales), The Corn Tour and the Tour of festive meals or traditional food. In each of them we try to value local and Guatemalan cuisine in general. Meals are the purest ways of transmitting and expressing the culture of a nation, of a people, of a family. For the same reason we know that ours is full of flavor, nutrition, natural ingredients and in many cases full of history, since they are a mixture of pre Hispanic food and other influences. Which in turn gives us a magnificent opportunity to taste in each dish an unparalleled flavor, unique in each region; and Quetzaltenango is not far behind. Come and not only enjoy these dishes, but learn to prepare them and to know why each utensil and ingredient is used so that we are healthy diners and full of satisfaction to the palate.
It will start with a tour to a market in the city where the ingredients will be purchased to make one of the traditional meals, we will arrive at a house in the town where you can take an express cooking class and start the preparation of lunch, We will have a traditional lunch and talk and chat with the family of the house.
The gastronomy of Quetzaltenango is very wide, rich flavors and colors, based on a very complete and organic Mayan ancestral nutrition. The experience of receiving an express cooking class using the ingredients and tools that our grandparents used will make you get the best taste of Guatemala in the smell, mind and mouth.
