I've taken other cooking classes over the years, but this was by far my favorite experience. Mavi could not have been more welcoming, and I was impressed by how much time she spent with us. While shopping, she was able to answer any questions we had about the food for sale at different stands, and different ways to prepare it.... More

She picked us up right on time and took us to several markets to buy ingredients. When i mentioned a love of lamb... More

We have been to take a cooking class from Chef Mavi 2 times in the last three years. Chef Mavi comes and picks you up from your hotel, etc. and takes you to the markets around town to purchase the food you will be learning to cook with. The menu possibilities are extensive and wonderful. She brings you to her... More

My husband and I met Mavi in June. She picked us up from our hotel and immediately we felt like we had been friends for years. She took us to the local market to buy a few items and then we went to her home. She and her assistant prepared us amazing drinks, appetizers, a main dish, and a wonderful... More

Amongst the various excursions six of us spent a marvelous day with Mavi delving into some of the secrets of Mexican cuisine. From the 10am pickup at the hotel, to the variety of local shops for the perfect ingredients, to her charming home with the stunning... More

My wife and I, along with our grown son and his girlfriend did the cooking course with Mavi yesterday. OMG. My son and I are both fluent in Spanish, and all four of us are intrepid travelers, but little prepared us for the sensory delights of our day with Mavi. Beginning in the markets, one of our favorite ways to... More
