    Cooking Oaxacan mole negro from scratch was one of the best food and cultural experiences I’ve ever had. On top of that, we didn’t really know what we were going to do when we set off in the morning… but things worked out for the best. Thank you to Javier and his family for inviting us into their home to cook amazing Oaxacan food!

    So in the morning the plan was
    Rent a van for the day
    Drive to a village
    Find a market
    Ask a nice Grandmother or Aunty to cook us some authentic Oaxacan mole negro

    Now, mole negro is one of the most complex and mysterious of all the Oaxacan Mexican food dishes. There’s such a huge mix of random ingredients in the dish, and no one knows for sure how it was invented or how it came about - there are only legends.

    After renting a van for the day, our driver Javier came to pick us up and we started talking with him to see if he knew anyone that would make us Oaxacan mole negro from scratch. He called his Mom, and she agreed!

    We picked up Mom in a place called Tlacolula de Matamoros, and we went straight to the market to buy all the ingredients for mole negro. Tlacolula de Matamoros is a predominantly Zapotec town, an Indigenous pre-Columbian civilization from the Valley of Oaxaca

    We got back to the house and started preparing all the ingredients. Let me tell you, mole negro has to be one of the most complex and mysterious of all Mexican food. It includes so many random and seemingly odd ingredients. It was a lot of fun to learn how to make it.

    The end result of the Oaxacan mole negro, was supreme. The sauce was so rich, chocolatey, and you could taste all the random ingredients in it - the nuts and dried fruit. It’s deliciously complex.

    Mole was amazing, and having the chance to hang out in a traditional Oaxacan village to cook was priceless.

    1.you CANNOT reduce to calling this a sauce!! A mole is a mole

    2.she cooked her heart off!!!

    3.she used walnuts, cinamon, resins and almonds like they just for 2bucks!!!! Bruh the quantity she used was insane.. A 100 gram is 500 rupees here!!!!!!!! And she literally invested A weeks budget on this mole just for you!!!
    Please tell me you paid her some decent amount!!(though tere can't be a repayment for this)AND KISSED HER A KISS OF GRATITUDE. cuz nothing less than that would be sufficient.!

    4.mexicans are like Cameroonians! They don't joke with their food. Food takes time. That was an investment of soul into that!

    5.mark has a trade mark expression natural to him when he appreciates the food. BUT the way she prepared this and the things that went into this.. Not just ingredients. But soul. I thought when he tastes this one I was waiting to hear a stomping of feet and screams of contentment!!! That expression wasn't enough o for that meal! She prepared it with zero complaints on last minute notice haha. She spent her day doing this bruh just for three of them to consume it in few mins chaaaiii!!!! Food eh!

    I don't even want to eat anything. I'm full watching this o

    Not sure how often I have watched this vlog? Many, many times. There is no doubt that life for this beautiful family is not easy but you would never know it. Mark’s Mexico adventure is truly some of the best travel for food content that there is. Wish he would go back and spend a few months. Like his adventures to India, Mark looks so happy, so excited. How I feel when I go to Mexico. Life is better with Mark in it. Safe travels to you. Long live beautiful 🇲🇽
