November 29 to December 5, 2012 marked the first OH! Food Workshop, a sustainable class in cooking with Hartwood Restaurant Chef and his more than capable staff, at Casa de las Olas and of course, Hartwood Restaurant. The 5 night stay at Casa de las Olas provided guests with a fine example of sustainable building and living practices, while Chef Eric and Chef Osbaldo shared their sustainable farm to chef cooking secrets in the heart of the Hartwood kitchen.
Guests think they rocked it! We think we rocked it! After learning, eating and drinking their way through three days of classes with Eric, The group settled down to a final dinner at Hartwood that they prepped that day. To compliment the creations of the Oh! Food Workshop team, Ricardo provided a wine pairing and Mexican wine tasting seminar during the feast.
It really was sustainability you can eat!
The next OH! Food Workshop will be held May 24th to 29th, 2013 and can be booked as we write! Demand is high and prices are good, and Eric has hand picked another Tulum chef from Celti Restaurant to share in the culinary experience that guests will have. Chef Claudia will be hosting one evening of the OH! Food Workshop where she will share her family recipes for moles and Mexican desserts, Chef Claudia’s specialty and we have to say…the best!
