For this edition of Cook It Raw, our group went on a journey into the heart of the Mayan world to learn about the history and spirituality of the local culture.

The group gained first-hand experience with cultivating and harvesting the milpa, as well as participating in contemporary social customs, ancient rituals, and in the process gained a deep understanding of the place and its global influence. Built around the concept of landscape as muse, participants traveled the region where they met with an international community of expat chefs, producers and artisans who have been drawn to this ancient corner of the world to create, participate and relate to their environment.
