Aren’t convents supposed to be austere, dull places? In Mexico, everything’s a little more colorful–including the food of Catholic nuns.

Cooking demonstration and tasting dinner at the Mexican Cultural Institute.
Enjoy the lingering pre-Hispanic flavors still inherent in exquisite dishes, sauces, desserts, drinks and all sort of concoctions that were prepared in convents to please Mexican royalty in Colonial times. From Mole Poblano to Buñuelos, it will be a meal to remember as you hear entertaining stories of the historical fusions between European and Native ingredients and cooking techniques.
