RLP Mexican Cultural-Culinary Experience This Fall!

culinary week 2014

Rancho La Puerta invites you to a Mexican Cultural-Culinary Experience!

October 25-November 1, 2014

Guest chefs, delicious food and fun activities—and plenty of learning—are the hallmarks of this very special week tailored for every home cook who loves food…and wants to learn new skills, recipes, and experience the rich culture of Mexico.

This week’s theme is “Maize (corn), Chili, and Chocolate!” They’re the backbone of great Mexican cuisine, ancient as well as nuevo.

As a Rancho La Puerta guest for the week, you can pick the specific events you wish to attend. The rest of the Rancho La Puerta experience is as abundantly complete as other weeks: a full slate of fitness classes and activities, hikes, workshops, relaxation, entertainment, guest presenters, and all the other unique programs that make Rancho La Puerta an unforgettable experience and great value.
