These classes, preparing traditional village dishes by traditional methods, are given by Reyna Mendoza in her open-air kitchen in the famous textile village of Teotitlán del Valle, 25km east of Oaxaca (two-way transportation included). Classes are normally held on Tuesday and Friday mornings (Teotitlán's main market days). Their pick-up point in Oaxaca is outside the Jardín Etnobotánico.
