What you will visit:
Compania Minera
Chef Diego Becerra is a local restaurateur who has taken the traditional foods of Mazatlán and elevated them to world-class dining. Chef Diego has three distinct restaurants: El Presidio, housed in an historic fortress; Diego's Beach House; and the modern seafood bar Compañia Minera. At Compañia Minera, a cooking demonstration will introduce you to one of the most traditional cooking techniques in Latin America by one of the region's top chefs. Ceviche is the application of citrus acid in the preparation of both raw and cooked seafood. In this fascinating demonstration, you'll learn how to make a balanced ceviche in acid, flavors and textures, featuring the freshest ingredients and using techniques that you can apply to any seafood combination you can imagine. Stops on this tour were hand-selected by Bill Esparza, a James Beard award winner and leading expert on Latin American cuisine.


What you will see along the way:
Compania Minera de Panuco is the sister restaurant of Chef Diego Becerra's flagship restaurant, Presidio. It is located in Mazatlán's Centro Historico, or "old town," which is a very charming part of Mazatlán, noted for its centuries-old historic attractions. A short, guided stroll introduces this enclave and such highlights as the Machado Square where the locals congregate to relax and chat. This square has colonial buildings, canobio arches and the Angela Peralta Opera House.

Snack:
The magnificent marine flavors of Mexico's Pacific Coast are served up during a tasting of three different ceviches-aguachile of cooked shrimp, red octopus ceviche and black squid ceviche-at Chef Diego Becerra's Compañía Minera. These tempting morsels of fine seafood are paired with local beer and Los Osuna, the last remaining of the blue agave spirits in the state and a fine, nostalgic taste of old Sinaloa.
