I don’t often teach live anymore, but I couldn’t say no to a week-long co-teaching trip with Lynn Whipple in Oaxaca, Mexico! We will be continuing our “Year of the Spark” online class, where we have been infusing more art, more creativity, more inspiration, and more fun in our lives!

And… there will be wonderful FOOD!

This trip is being organized by Kathie Vezzani. Kathie, also an artist, has been organizing culinary trips to Mexico with Culinary Adventures, Inc. and Marilyn Tausend for the past twenty years with chefs such as Rick Bayless, Diana Kennedy, Susana Trilling (from Oaxaca), Roberto Santibanez, and the late Elaine Gonzalez. Additionally, she tested recipes for Tausend’s last three Mexican cookbooks. Kathie’s tours combine two of her passions, food and art.

Joining her as she has with Culinary Adventures’ tours, is Ane Elena Martinez, a pastry chef from Puebla who coordinates details in Mexico.
