Great cooking class!
Jun 2021
Wow!
Michael and I had a private cooking class with Carolina and from the start learned hacks from how to slice limes to seeding chiles! A great way to explore the cuisines of Mexico. I highly recommend doing this class, which started with market shopping then we were welcomed into Carolinas home. We prepared chicken mole and three salsas.

My wife and I attended a cooking class with three other attendees. We had a great time and Carolina and staff are the BEST at what they do. Everything was fantastic from first meeting to adios. Carolina even emailed me the recipes. Highly Recommend!

This was a great activity! Carolina and her sisters made us feel like part of the family. The group we were in was so much fun it was like we'd known each other for years. Hint - Do not eat a lot beforehand. We made tamales for lunch and were to full to even think about eating dinner!

May 2021
What can I say Carolina and her family are a wonderful and beautiful group of people. The entire tour was personable and so much fun. We salsa danced with the mom and sister while preparing and cooking our meal.

Every dish and every bite was flavorful, mouthwatering and delicious. It was cool to experience shopping in the market for our dishes. The margaritas were good!

The cooking class in very intimate because it is in their mom which makes it even more personable and makes you feel like you're family. The entire family are chefs or cook!

Book the tour you won't regret it!

Mi Margarita Su Margarita!
May 2021 • Friends
My favorite part was our hostesses Carolina and Issi they made this cooking class awesome very welcoming. The Margheritas were awesome! My best advice come hungry because you won't leave hungry more like a stuffed roasted Chili! You won't be disappointed They had a charming lovely House! Our group was great....lots of laughter.....

May 2021 • Solo
For anyone who wants to get hands on and learn traditional style mexican cooking this class was it. From going to purchase the ingredients needed for the meal at the local fresh food markets to the hospitality of the chef in thier families home. I will definitely be back for another class.

Fantastic Experience!
May 2021
We had a fantastic time with Carolina and "Mama" at our cooking class. This class is the real deal - inside their family home! We started with a tour of some of the best markets in Cabo to find chiles, meat and produce for our class. Once at the home, we started with the most amazing margaritas infused with beautiful purple bougainvillea. We continued with 3 kinds of salsa and guacamole. All of them were amazing. Since we were the only ones in the class that day, Carolina let us choose our own menu and we chose Chicken Mole. Over the top good! And then she also sent us all of the recipes for all of the classes by email. Overall a great experience that we will remember as one of the highlights of our trip to Cabo.
