Materia Prima @ Itanoni Oaxaca

A Monthly, 5-Course Guided Tasting and Sensory Exploration of Mexico’s Culinary Pillars: Corn, Chocolate, Mezcal

Next Dates: Saturday, December 19, 2020 – 6:00pm-8:30pm @ Itanoni Oaxaca


The Tasting:

Maize/Corn on the Comal @ Itanoni Oaxaca
While you may have heard of the three sisters, Mexico also has three pillars – maize (corn), cacao (chocolate), and agave (maguey).

These three distinct foods each carry their own ancient history, as well as daily and ceremonial nourishment for local people.

With a five-course tasting as our vehicle, each month the founders of Itanoni, Oaxaca Profundo Sessions, and Expresiones del Mezcal invite you to join us on what is a deep gastronomical, cultural, and sensorial dive into the world and intersections of these three great Mesoamerican foods, at Itanoni Oaxaca.

From the raw materials to prepared foods to rare versions of each ancient food staple, we challenge our guests to come with clean slate and palette, to learn and deepen our collective understanding of these culinary and cultural pillars.

Key Details:

When: Two Nights a Month (see calendar), 6pm-8pm, Reservations Required

Where: Itanoni Restaurant (Avenida Belisario Dominguez 513, Colonia Reforma, Oaxaca)
