I highly recommend attending Claudia's class. It's more than just cooking, it's a history of Mexican cooking. We had a group of 8 and everyone participated in the process. We all came away with new techniques and lots of good recipes.

I try to go to this class every year. The setting is charming, the food delicious, and Claudia and Lorenzo are charming hosts. The lessons are interesting and fun. I'd definitely recommend it, even if you aren't a BIG fan of cooking. If you go, don't eat anything before because you will want to try all the wonderful dishes that... More

My husband and I took a cooking class with Claudia and Lorenzo that focused on traditional Mexican food, and it was fantastic. We organized transportation through Lorenzo, which seemed to be the standard- our whole class showed up at their house in the same van. We were offered fresh churros and Mexican coffee, so don't show up after a big... More

If you are visiting Cancun or the Mayan Riviera don't miss a cooking class with Claudia at her cooking school Can Cook in Cancun. I recently attended a class there and highly recommend it, whether you like to cook or not. Claudia is a trained chef with extensive experience and conducts the cooking classes at her home in a professionally... More

It was delightful to see an actual home in Cancun! Claudia and Lorenzo open their home and treat their students as guests while sharing their love of Mexican cuisine and culture. Claudia is a wonderful culinary and history teacher! Lorenzo is a gracious host and takes the opportunity to educate the students in some of the finer points of Mexican... More

This is a wonderful experience from a culinary, sociological and historical point of view. But, beyond that, it is just plain fun. Claudia and Lorenzo are gracious, considerate, well informed hosts. You immediately feel comfortable in their home. You participate in the preparation of an elaborate meal while consuming delicious "snacks," along the way. By the time you seat down... More

We took Claudia and Lorenzo's cooking class today in downtown Cancun. Situated in a lovely home that is well suited for a cooking class, we listened, learned, participated and then ate our way from 9:30 in the morning until after 4pm. Not only do they know their stuff, Claudia has a delightful sense of humor that can put anyone at... More

We loved the venue in the home of the friendly husband and wife team, Claudia and Lorenzo and we enjoyed the meal afterwards. The presentation on Mexican food was good, but limited to a few items. In my opinion it was more a demonstration than cooking classes as we only occasionally had the opportunity to do things ourselves. In a... More

This unique experience blended history, foods and food preparation in the home of Chef Claudia and her husband. It was a class that provided "hands on" instruction. The food we prepared and ultimately ate was delicious. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys cooking and is interested in expanding their knowledge and skill base.

This is the last review we received during 2014. It was a WONDERFUL YEAR. Many of those who where with us are repeats from previous seasons. Many of you we dearly now call "amigos": There are no words to thank all who attended our Mexican Cooking Classes during this past year and the previous. The best we can say is... More

We were only in town for three days and unsure what to do during the day. A quick review of TA turned up Can Cook Cancun. Hubby and I both love cooking classes and food tours so were delighted to be able to reserve this. Imagine our surprise to learn that he and I were Claudia and Lorenzo's only students... More
