The Mexican Bakery: Pan de Muerto

Duration: 3½ hoursType: In-PersonPrice: $140

Rich in indigenous history, Dia de los muertos is a two-day holiday in Mexico where family and friends welcome back the souls of loved ones that have passed. There is a lot of color, ceremony, and of course, plenty of delicious food to enjoy. In the days leading up to this holiday, Gino Garcia – author of Disney Pixar’s Coco: The Official Cookbook – will teach you about the traditional spiced sweet breads prepared for this holiday. You’ll make fluffy pan de yema (“egg yolk bread,” flavored with orange, anise seed, cinnamon, and vanilla) that you’ll shape into pan de muerto negro (the popular “skull and bones” shape) decorated with corn husk ashes and marigold flowers; pan de yema de alfeñique (Oaxacan-style bread decorated with sesame seeds and candy skull); and pan de animas (Guanajuato-style “soul bread” shaped like a person, glazed with meringue and strawberry sugar). You’ll enjoy your freshly baked treats with cajeta de muerto (guava and sweet potato butter) and chocolate de agua (cinnamon-spiced drinking chocolate).
