Experience Oaxaca: A Week of Food & Photography
On Holy Week, Oaxaca explodes into a place that must be experienced to believe it! If you don’t see it at least once, you’ll regret it forever.
This tour is designed and led by Chef Susana Trilling, a renowned authority on Oaxacan cuisine, who is a teacher, author and TV host and the director of Seasons of My Heart Cooking School in Oaxaca, along with Todd Coleman, an award-winning photographer and writer who is the editor-at-large at Tasting Table and former executive food editor of Saveur.
Oaxaca has a unique story to tell, its gastronomy and culture are unparalleled and a trove of endless wonders. From its deeply delicious tapestry of moles, tamales, and tlayudas to its hidden mountain farms and the intricate lives of the native people from the State.
This 9 day - 8 night course is designed to cover everything a magazine story would delve into, with tours and expert guidance during this magical week, including cooking in Teotitlán del Valle with the Hernandez family; street photography instruction and photo session in a mountain village; many lively and colorful processions; photography through markets followed by cooking classes; a late night taco run; food styling shoots ; and much more.
Are you ready to experience and capture Oaxaca in all its breathtaking glory? Let’s tell its story together.
