You will then take a 15 minute walk along the streets of one of Cholula’s oldest “barrios” (neighborhoods) where an urban art initiative has fused with a very old traditional lifestyle.  

Then you will arrive at the home of a local chef where you will be served a seven course meal.  You will be greeted with a refreshing Prehispanic beverage and snacks.  You will learn about Prehispanic gastronomy and how ancient foods were made using traditional techniques and materials.  After a demonstration from the chef you will have the unique opportunity to prepare one of the Prehispanic recipes included in the menu.
