Since 2009 the gastronomic festival “El Saber del Sabor” hosted by Chef Alejadro Ruiz from Casa Oaxaca Restaurant and Casa Oaxaca Hotel has taken place in Oaxaca.
The gastronomic festival has celebrated three consecutively successful years, and this year is no different! We at the Instituto Cultural Oaxaca were thrilled to join in on this year’s festivities, and Alejandro’s efforts to promote and foster Oaxaca’s culinary traditions. Yesterday afternoon we hosting for the first time ever an indescribably delicious event, “Comida Oaxacalifornia.”
The delicious meal was accompanied by Wahaka Mezcal and a Selection of wines from the most distinguished vineyards in Baja California, these wines included Monte Xanic, Convertible Rojo, Nera, Casa Madero, and Luna del Valle.
The “El Sabor de Saber” festival takes place every September in Oaxaca, and is hosted by various venues and restaurants across the city. It is an extraodinary opportunity to sample the culinary delights of Mexico with a touch of Oaxacan flair. If you are not able to make it to the events, you may still sample the delicious Oaxacan fare by visiting the participating chefs at their local Oaxacan restaurants which include Pitonia, Casa Oaxaca, Catedral, Origen, Asador Vasco, among many others!
