A day in the San Miguel kitchen of Paco Cárdenas provides an indelible memory of a Mexican holiday. I've taken cooking classes around the world, and this was one of the best! We had an opportunity to visit San Miguel's Central Market, snacking as we shopped for ingredients for our meal, then got to do our chopping, cooking and sampling in the chef's beautiful terrace kitchen, before tucking into a three-course luncheon. Everything about the day zinged with color and great flavors.
A cooking session with Paco is perfect for small groups--we were four-- and comes with an added bonus: a chance to try one of his signature desserts (Paco is a pastry chef and co-owner of the popular El Petit Four French bakery and patisserie in downtown San Miguel de Allende).
