What you'll do

We will start the day at 8:00 am where you will be welcomed with a delicious corn atole and local bread to catch energy. Later we will leave for the field, where you will know the maguey plant (pulque agave) and you will be able to witness and taste the extraction of the "aguamiel" (nectar that sprouts from the center of the maguey when scraping it) that later becomes Pulque (drink made with fermented aguamiel) , which you can also try. Then we will go to the "milpa", where you can see the agroecological production of corn and participate in activities according to the season (planting, harvesting, corn shelling, etc) After the walk, you will surely have an appetite, so we will visit a traditional kitchen of almost 100 years where a meal based on the cornfield, and poetry or songs in Nahuatl are shared with the traditional cookers. For a cool ending, you can also practice your manual skills by learning to make figures with dried corn husks. Finally, there is also the option to visit the pulp maker Maguey distillation workshop and taste it with the explanation of the master mezcalero

Cecilia

I have studied environmental sciences, so I'am passionate about the food-environment relationship, and a lover of ecogastronomy. I participate in the international Slow Food movement since 2013, and have had the opportunity to know several countries through its gastronomy, and also to know my state and my country through its gastronomic heritage. For some years ago, I am dedicated to promoting activities that link the pleasures of the table with the commitment to protect the community of producers, their culture, their environment, and the knowledge of traditional cuisine, union of elements that makes each dish be a conscious pleasure, from its preparation to consumption
