Your Suggested Itinerary:
A Terrace with a Historical View & Tasting Menu at Los Juaninos
Be in awe with the historic views from this rooftop restaurant terrace and see for yourself why downtown Morelia was recognized as a World Heritage Site, and what is it that makes purepecha cuisine so unique in Mexico.
What Does Michoacan Taste Like? at Lu Cocina Michoacana Restaurante
Michoacán tastes like mezcal with the view of a thousand mountaintops; Like the Sierra de Jalmich pastures where Cotija cheese was born; Like the reflection of silvery charales (miniature fish) swimming in Patzcuaro Lake.
It tastes like the journey of the Monarch Butterfly; Like the silkiness of chocolate or the deep red color of passion fruit; Like cardamom awakening memories in your taste buds.
Michoacán tastes like mystical corn, and above all, it tastes like love in the hands of wonderful cooks –past and present—that allow us to enjoy and celebrate the many wonders of this magnificent land.
Traditional Tasting Menu and Charanda Pairing at Mansión Iturbe
This colonial mansion was restored in 1969, not only to preserve its extraordinary architecture and art pieces, but also to embody and rescue traditions of times past. One of them is the charanda, a sugarcane distillate that you will have the opportunity to taste along with a traditional menu from the purepecha cuisine.
Copper Hammering Workshop at Santa Clara del Cobre
Santa Clara del Cobre is an authentic village known for copper production. Enter a real workshop to see first-hand how artisans work with this red-hot mineral to create works of art and everyday items. Try your hand at hammering the copper and being a part of the creation. Next, visit some local galleries that showcase the finished works.
Hands-on Clay Pottery Workshop at Santa Fe de La Laguna
Put your hands to work inside a typical clay workshop in Santa Fe de la Laguna. After creating your own clay object alongside experts, you’ll learn the most important Mexican artform of them all – making tortillas! Enjoy a delicious quesadilla for lunch with a refreshing glass of seasonal fruit water.
Chocolate and Mezcal Tasting at 1850 Boutique Hotel
Chocolate and mezcal are both authentic Mexican culinary highlights, but pairing them together is a surprising experience. Indulge your palate in a variety of flavor notes and textures while you listen to the city bells toll and contemplate the tones of the sunset from the terrace. In the midst of this orquestra for the senses, you won’t miss the spectacular Mujer del Arbol tree standing like a witness of time, tradition and Mexican culture.
Mining Enchiladas Cooking Class & Cocktail at 1850 Boutique Hotel
For generations, Guanajuato has been known as an important mining town and this style of enchiladas is close to the heart of locals as it was originally conceived by the miners’ wives as a special treat after a long day of hard work. The recipe fuses indigenous ingredients with colonial era cooking techniques to create a unique flavor only found in Guanajuato. Take in the history behind these special enchiladas and learn to prepare your own at the hotel terrace overlooking the colonial architecture square while you sip at a mezcal and garambullo fruit cocktail.
