If you enjoy local food and culture, this is the experience for you!  Journey back to Cholula’s Prehispanic era in the company of an archaeologist and a chef for a one of a kind adventure that includes a short walking tour and a complete Prehispanic meal.

The meeting spot is right in front of the Cholula train station.  First, you will walk up to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Remedies, the famous church built over the world’s largest pyramid. We will then walk around the ancient center. You will be given an in depth explanation about Cholula’s ancient history and the way people lived in the Prehispanic era while you admire some of the ruins.
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.

You will enjoy these ancient recipes made with natural, seasonal, and local ingredients while also learning about the history of each dish.
