The Spirits of Agave:
Experience Oaxaca’s Unique Fermented Agave Drinks, Their History, Myths, and Regeneration
A local organic market is our classroom as we taste and learn about the mysteries of maguey/agave not only through Mexican cultural history, but through flavours. Through a flight or tasting of three distinct maguey/agave beverages, we endeavour to learn about the mysterious path of maguey, the Goddess Mayahuel, the moon, and pulque in Oaxaca. Guests are challenged to consider their approach to the vast differences in taste, textures, and context that root Oaxacan and Western traditions and how all of this might inform our relations to farming, elderhood, sacrifice, myth, and food.
