Food and photography blend this fall for what looks like a fascinating expedition across the Yucatán Peninsula.

Mérida’s famous Los Dos Cooking School joins the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops Nov. 4-13, exploring the city of Mérida and out to various towns and archaeological and historic sites.

Participants will travel throughout the region with award-winning National Geographic photographers and instructors Macduff Everton and Jennifer Davidson, photographing Maya ruins, ecological reserves and the beautiful natural environment so unique to the peninsula.

And a visit to the region isn’t complete without diving into its culinary culture. Chef David Sterling will gather guests in the Los Dos kitchen to prepare traditional Yucatecan foods, and then lead participants to local pueblos to sample more cuisine in situ.

The workshop is for amateur as well as professional photographers, and for anyone who enjoys cooking and eating, say organizers.

The cost is $6,795 per person, which includes tuition; nine night’s accommodations at Casa del Balam (double occupancy; single supplement is $680); nine continental breakfasts, seven lunches, and five dinners; entrance fees; and local transportation. Airfare to Mérida is not included. This workshop requires a $1,000 deposit per person.

Here is a PDF with the full itinerary and enrollment information. Or email Chef David Sterling for more information
