Traditions of Oaxaca
EARLY BIRD PRICING!
Join us as we take Makers Meals on the road to the vibrant city of Oaxaca, Mexico. This meal, built in collaboration with local curators Convivio and Thread Caravan, will be a unique exploration of Oaxacan traditions, old and new. Combining food, mezcal, art and artisans, we’re inviting guests to immerse themselves in the unique community of Makers that call this stunning landscape home.
ABOUT THE MEAL
For one night only, Convivio’s garden will be transformed, providing the setting for our long table supper featuring the food, drink and art of Oaxaca’s thriving Maker community. This meal will highlight a combination of Oaxacan traditions, old and new, featuring chefs Eduardo Vera of Atila del Sur and Julio Aguilera, formerly of El Destilado.
Mezcal will be our spirit of choice as we explore its rich history and versatility with Mixologist extraordinaire, Taïs Kuri, and experience a mezcal tasting featuring rare, small-batch varieties.
Tablescapes will be designed by Caitlin Garcia-Ahern, founder and creator of travel company Thread Caravan, to highlight local textile and ceramics artisans and will incorporate heritage maíz and indigenous plants.
The evening will also feature a traditional Calenda brass band and several local artists who plan to create unique pieces for the evening.
Whether you’re traveling from near or far, we invite you to join us around the table for the most unique Makers Meals experience to date.
MAKE A FULL-DAY OF IT WITH A MEZCAL TOUR + TASTING

Here you will learn the process of making mezcal via first hand experience with family-run businesses. The cost of this trip includes the mezcal experience, mezcal tastings, transportation, and lunch.
