Everything about a day with Mavi is amazing! She is full of extras such as local neighborhood tours, nibbles of PV's best hidden gems, restaurant recommendations, and hands-on tours through PV's local markets. Beyond all of this, she opens up her very own beautiful home overlooking the Marina to complete the experience. Cooking in Mavi's kitchen, surrounded by pictures of... More

Our day with Mavi was terrific. My favorite part was the shopping for ingredients at the different local markets while learning about the Mexican culture of food. I also enjoyed the meal and Mavi's artisan approach to cooking. This really helped me to view cooking in a different more enjoyable way that I hope will make for better cooking experiences... More

Mavi, Thank you so much for the outstanding day David and I had with you on 6/9/2014. It is clear you LOVE what you do, and it exudes from your soul. The morning spent shopping for ingredients was very educational and entertaining. Of course the best part was me cooking with you in your kitchen. I loved our menu selection,... More

I recently hosted a Wedding rehearsal cocktail for my son, and it was very important for me to have as stress free event as possible. Mavi and her team came through for me on every level. She offered many options and we decided on a more international menu of hors d'oeuvres than a Mexican menu (which was going to be... More

Indeed it was a fascinating experience with a classy touch! The beauty of it was going out with Mavi to the local market and buying the fresh seafood, the vegetables, spices etc. for the courses that she meticulously prepared for us. My wife and I prepare our dinners at home from scratch every evening and to prepare high class Mexican... More

This was easily the best thing we did In Puerto Vallarta and felt more like catching up with a local friend than a tour. The day started when mavi collected us from our condo and took us shopping. Local suppliers of fresh tortillas, seafood, chicken and vegetables were all introduced as we collected the supplies needed for our chosen courses... More

Mavi is an amazing person. She is very warm, knowledgable and an exceptional cook. I wanted to experience more of Mexico and she delivers this and more. She will welcome you into her community and her home and leave you feeling fully intoxicated and in love with Mexican food and Mexican culture. This is an amazing day exploring Mexican markets,...

Mavi made us feel comfortable from the start. She shared her favorite markets and suppliers so we could shop on our own in the future. No Costco or Walmart shopping for our fabulous chef. It felt as though we were learning some of Puerto Vallarta's best food shopping secrets. Mavi made sure we had the opportunity to be in the... More

My sister and I arranged a private cooking lesson with Mavi while in PV in early May, 2014. The experience exceeded our expectations. The day started with the fabulous and experienced Mavi picking us up at our apartment and taking us shopping at all the insider places. We visited fruit/vegetable markets, a butcher, fish monger, spice shop, tortilla maker to... More
