World's Greatest Dream Trips
“I want to go to Oaxaca for cooking classes and San Miguel de Allende for the art.” —Tara O’Leary, via Facebook
Start at Casa Oaxaca Café Restaurante for a nouveau-Oaxacan brunch in the garden terrace before heading to Casa de los Sabores cooking school ($75), run out of chef Pilar Cabrera’s house. Classes include a visit to the local market and mezcal tastings. A seven-hour drive is the easiest and most direct route to San Miguel de Allende. See the bounty of the colonial town’s art at Fábrica La Aurora, a collection of almost 40 galleries, shops, and studios. Hotel Matilda has an unrivaled contemporary collection and a posh infinity pool.
