Wednesday, October 26, 2011 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
No, we're not referring to Jerry Garcia's favorite baked goods. With The Day of the Dead soon upon us, Chaac Mool shares how food lies at the heart of culture. The focus of this session will be traditional breads like pan de muerto, (which translates to "bread of the dead" in English) but dinner and drinks are also included.
About Luis and Maria de la Luz Vazquez
Chaac-Mool Yucatecan Food would love the opportunity to introduce you to traditional Mayan Cuisine. Luis Vazquez drew inspiration from the ancient god of rain to start the namesake company Chaac Mool. Vazquez, a fifth generation Yucatecan breadmaker, and his wife Maria formed the company six years ago in their small Tenderloin apartment. Chac Mool is a family run business that serves regional Mexican, indigenous and Pre-Hispanic cuisine. The Vazqueses believe that there is more to Mexican food than burritos and uses their food to bring the legends, flavors and feelings of Mexico straight to you.
