Los Dos, Mérida, Mexico

3 of 26

At Los Dos (from $125) in colonial Mérida, American expat David Sterling teaches cocina yucateca, one of Mexico’s great regional cuisines. Daylong workshops start at the Lucas de Gálvez market to look for Maya staples such as chaya, beans, achiote, and epazote. After sampling snacks at street stalls, students head back to Sterling’s brightly tiled kitchen to learn the techniques for squash soup with maize dumplings, achiote-marinated red snapper, and pit-roasted venison.

Don’t Miss: Side trips to artisanal producers of rum, herbs, honey, and chicharrónes (fried pork rinds) arranged by the school.
