The Seven Moles

These seven wonders of the (Oaxacan) world are packed into one fabulous culinary experience in Etla with Andrea, our favorite chef and vendor from the Pochote Organic Market. The seven moles (or Oaxacan sauces) are the most typically-recognized flavors in Oaxaca, although there are infinite variations. Each one is a labor of love, boasting a myriad of strong, complex flavors that are born from the creative mixing of prominent local ingredients.

We will be making the following delicious moles that exemplify the best of what Oaxacan gastronomy has to offer:

Amarillo (Yellow)

Verde (Green)




Negro (Black)

Rojo (Red)

We will arrive in Etla at 11 a.m. and will work with Andrea to create our seven delicacies. Meanwhile, Andrea will put on a pot of rice and heat up some tortillas with which we can try all of our seven creations.
