What you'll do

In Mexico, El Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead), is a celebration to remember and prepare special foods in honor of family members and loved ones who have departed. In this experience, you will learn how to make Pan de Muertos (Bread of the Dead), a homemade bread prepared for day-of-the-dead offerings during late October to early November. We'll have special sesions from October 20th till November 1st where you will decore your own Sugar Skulls as well. Mexican creativity has fostered the creation of this very delicious treat! Some of the more popular varieties include fillings such as cream cheese, cream, chocolate, caramel, dried fruit, pumpkin, walnut, apple; or different toppings, such as sesame, sugar, and butter, in varied in shapes and sizes. The version we will share will follow an original recipe that our ancestors have made for several centuries, accentuated with the flavor and aroma of orange blossom and covered with sugar! By the end of this amazing culinary experience, not only will your taste buds be amazed, but you will also understand the symbolism of each element, as well as the origins of this ancient tradition!
