What you'll do

Let's cook together! We will go through the whole process and will cook the best mole you will ever taste!

“Manchamanteles” Mole is a fruity mole sauce that originates from the Mexican state of Puebla. This versatile sauce can be served over pork loin, chicken, quesadillas, enchiladas or any dish of your choice. In our class, we will try adding mole to a Quesadilla, and then you can use the mole however you wish and have a creation of your own.

Mole can be a very complicated dish to prepare, and there are many ways to do it, but the Manchamantel Mole from Puebla can be the most desirable for this experience because it's an easy one to prepare, yet sophisticated enough to make it a great one.

This will be an interactive experience where you will learn how to prepare the Mole, ask as many questions as you have, and interact with other people doing the same thing to see who can make the very best mole. This is perfect for lunch or for dinner!

I am a Mexican chef and love what I do! I love cooking delicious meals from my grandma's recipes. She was the best cook I have ever met, and I love to play around with that and find my very own creations. Her favorite dish is the mole, a very exotic Mexican sauce that can accompany many different dishes.

I love mole and wouldn't have been able to produce this without Jacinto's clear, direct, and friendly instruction. I appreciated his anecdotes while we prepared the mole and quesadillas very much. This is a fun and different online cooking experience in that I a) used a blender for chili peppers :) b) combined ingredients that I would not have considered combining together to create this dish. Really great stuff - thank you!

This was the first time I had made mole. I have always loved it but never made it myself. It was so easy the way Jacinto taught us. I’m hooked! This is a great experience and I highly recommend it! Thank you Jacinto for loving what you do.

Jacinto is a mole expert! He made the whole process so easy and simple, and yet the mole came out with very complex flavors. An excellent storyteller, and a very enjoyable experience. Highly recommend!

Explanations were clear and he provided us with lovely cultural anecdotes, which made the experience even more unique. I highly recommend Jacinto's online cooking experiences.

The mole was amazing! So delicious and very different from anything I have made before. I think this is a brilliant recipe because it wasn't hard to make but the end result felt very fancy and sophisticated. It was exciting to make something so different from anything I have made before, and I will definitely keep making this dish. Jacinto was a great host, clear instructions, easy to follow, interesting stories about Mexican cuisine. I highly recommend this experience!

This is a great class! Jacinto was very welcoming and offered step-by-step instructions while sharing stories about the culture and his family's recipes and traditions. A super easy dish to make, but very glad that we had someone guiding us and sharing the history!
