DAY OF THE DEAD SPECIAL
Hanál Pixán, or "Feast of the spirits" in Mayan, is an ancient harvest festival and predates the more well-known Day of the Dead by centuries. The tradition is alive and well in Yucatán, where for a full week people prepare altars in honor of a visit from their departed ancestors, and make special foods for their enjoyment. The most famous of these foods – mucbilpollo – is a giant tamal filled with chicken and baked in an underground oven, or píib. Its “burial” and “resurrection” have obvious symbolism. During this special class, we will prepare the classic mucbilpollo and other foods unique to Yucatán. 9:00am - 4:00pm. Minimum class size: 6
