You'll uncover the secrets behind the artistic techniques used to deliver an array of delicious Yucatan-style dishes as you handcraft your own taco with a juicy, sour-orange marinated pork, traditional Poc Chuc style meat. Your gastronomical experience also gives you the chance to create a habanero-flavored tomato sauce in with a real large mortar and pestle known as a molcajete to pair that you'll pair with red onions and black beans for your Poc Chuc taco.
