During this culinary experience, guests travel back to the roots of ancient Mexican cuisine as they learn the pre-Hispanic technique of “barbacoa” used by the Tlaxcalan people. The experience begins in the morning when guests meet the Chef, who presents quality sheep meat from local farmers, whose organic and free-range meats are renowned throughout Baja.
With Chef, guests wrap the meat in Maguey leaves and place it in a heated, underground barbacoa oven. The meat is covered, and over the next seven hours, it will cook slowly in the heated oven and become moist, tender and richly flavorful. That evening, guests gather at a communal table to enjoy a traditional barbacoa dinner with fine mezcal and traditional salsas and sides.
This seasonal culinary experience not only gives guests a glimpse into the history of Mexican gastronomy, but also gives them the opportunity to meet other resort guests during this lively family-style meal. Seasonally available on Saturdays during October through June. Subject to availability.
