Oscar was welcoming, friendly, and informative. He is a bit reserved, but that was ok. Our class had 3 people. We chose the menu over coffee or chocolate, then went to shop at one of my favorite markets, Sanchez Pascuas. On the way he pointed out things like the tree bloom for which Oaxaca is named, the meaning of a... More

My husband and I found this class to be a true highlight of our visit. Oscar invited us to help shape the menu according to our wishes as a group, and the collection of dishes came together beautifully! Visiting the market was great fun, especially as we learned many interesting details along the way and had the opportunity to sample... More

We started the day with a taste of tamales, moles and hot chocolate and then walked to all a market where we selected ingredients for our chosen dishes. Back at Casa Crespo we got down to cooking at least 9 dishes including starters, mains, deserts and a passion fruit drink. Everyone was included in the preparation and then we sat... More

This was truly a great course from when I arrived I felt welcome even though I was solo. The breakfast was amazing and then the chef asked us what we wanted to cook I think that was a nice touch as we were able to pick the dishes that best suited us. We started with a local market food to... More

I only read these TripAdvisor reviews after I took the class (it had been recommended to me by someone) so I expected a good experience and, all in all, that's what I got. I was part of group of three and my experience was that Oscar answered all of our questions readily and gave us the time and attention we... More

It was just myself and my husband on the class so we had all of Chef Oscar's attention. We liked the fact that we were given a choice of dishes to cook and that we were emailed the recipes afterwards. Oscar took a lot of time to explain all the different fruits, herbs, and vegetables to us in the market,... More

We wanted so much to love this, but alas, were disappointed before the class even began. We arrived on time, and were "greeted" by Oscar, who shook our hands but did not smile, and did not ask us our names. He sat us in a (lovely) dining room and offered hot choc or coffee -- and then left us alone... More

Had a great time at this cooking class - we had a nice choice of what recipes to make that day - there were only 3 of us in the class - the morning included an interesting time at the local market and then straight into the cooking, helping to prepare all the ingredients (chopping, dicing, tasting) - and then...

My wife and I had a wonderful time with chef and class instructor Oscar Carrizosa. Four participants. He started by giving us options for what we wanted to learn to cook. Then we got right into it, with ample opportunities for each of us to chop, cut, press, mix, etc. Very patient with those with weak knife skills (me). In... More

I organised this class via text to Oscar and he was quick to respond. My daughter and I were the only ones in the class that day, so I felt like we had a lot of choice in the food we could prepare. We then walked to the local market where he told us about the many ingredients used in... More
