Whether a novice or a keen and competent home chef, you will enjoy this morning of cooking alongside others. Demonstrations and hands on cooking will enable you to prepare Mexican food, which was previously beyond you. No more supermarket tachos, no more shop bought Guacamole,- also free apron and little green bag along with recipe book, it's a must

This was one of the highlights of our trip to the Riviera Maya. The people are friendly, and Chef Cristobal's knowledge of Mexican food and culture is remarkable. This is a must-do!

We had been looking for a few specific Mexican spices but were unable to find them until we discovered the "store" here. There are also some handicraft items for sale.

The chef is great. I learned a ton about herbs and spices I have never used. It was fun as well as educational. They were very accommodating of my pescatarian preferences. Our group came away with some great memories. I highly recommend it. 😀

The chef seems to really enjoy his work. He's lively, full of history, PM info, shares all kinds of tips, and actually co-ordinated 16 women working together in one kitchen. We were a big group, but everyone got to do prep for our menu. The food we made was Delicious! We each took home a small recipe book and an... More
