Tinggly love this Yucatan cuisine tour - we believe the best way to truly understand a region is through its food, and this is an authentic introduction to a world of intense flavours, recipes passed down generations, and a rich, varied collection of traditional dishes. With your guide escorting you, roam the streets of downtown Merida until you reach the Lucas de Galvez market, and learn about the various foodstuffs unique to the Yucatan peninsula: recados, achiote, the habanero chili.
After the shopping you’ll catch a local bus to the home of a family who will welcome you into their home, and help you prepare a delicious 3-course meal. As you chop, dice and fry, learn about Yucatan culture, the influence of other nationalities on their cuisine, and pick up some useful vocabulary. The meal will be accompanied chaya or flavoured hibiscus water, and this is the perfect way to meet new friends, learn more about the place you’re visiting, and enjoy an informal, tasty lunch. Hach ki' a wi'ih (Enjoy your meal)!
