Chikle Prehispanic Cooking Class
English (United Kingdom)

This is a glimpse of our services, Chikle welcomes you


Have a fantastic experience cooking in Cancún. Learn some of our prehispanic gastronomy and enjoy a special menu that will help you to reach back into 500 years of Mexican cooking history.

You will see and use the cookware that is still popular in some Mexican houses: molcajete, a stone tool, an anafre, a small baker used for strong traditional drinks and famous tortillas preparation, a metate, a ground stone tool used for processing grains and seeds.

In traditional Mesoamerican culture, metates were typically used by women to grind calcified "maiz" (corn) and other organic materials during food preparation.

«Fogon» – «A kitchen altar» - Is a household keeper used in the Mayan and Aztec culture. Using it you will be able to cook tortillas and fill them with "chapulines" (grasshoppers) and Oaxaca cheese, and this is only a small part of what you can bring back home.

Tell your friends that you have been in a time machine and tried Pre-Hispanic Cuisine:

  • «Poc Chuc» - Yucatecan grilled pork,
  • «Cochinita Pibil» - A traditional Mexican slow-roasted pork dish wrapped in banana leaf,
  • «Sopa de Lima» - Spicy chicken soup with fresh lemon juice
  • «Botana» or «Garnachas» – Roasted meat with avocado,
  • «Queso Relleno» - Cheese filled with meat and spices, cream soup with cilantro,
  • «Salbutes» or «Panuchos» – Different flour tortillas filled with beans, cheese, pork pieces and onion.

We highly recommend this tour for everybody who is an expert in historical facts and wants to plunge headlong into the past.

Best of all in a beautiful environment, enjoy your meal sorrounded by Cancun's virgin jungle...
