I had Chef Alexandra provide a cooking class in my hotel (Mayan Palace) and it was a tremendous experience. It was amazing to fly in that day and not worry about food or going out and learning to cook in the privacy and comfort of our hotel room. She provided all of the ingredients based upon the menu I selected... More

Loved the cooking experience with Chef Alexandra. I had asked for dishes that I could repeat back home and it was perfect. Got to be hands on in cooking 4 course meal, with loads of side tips from her. They were simple to prepare under her direction and so tasty. Really enjoyed being able to sit down with her afterwards... More

I booked this class for my 19 years old daughter and husband as for fun time together. Alexandra is an amazing person and excellent cook. She made us feel very comfortable, no pressure , easy explanation and instructions. It was amazingly fun experience. My husband never cooked in his life and was a bit timid about doing this class. He... More

My husband and I have taken cooking classes all across the world and this one by far was our favorite. We met with Alexandra at a private residence and we learned how to cook four courses of authentic Mexican cuisine. Alexandra was a great teacher who not only guided us through the process but explained the background and history of... More

When we booked the dinner with Alexandra, we had an idea what to expect. First of all it was 5 minutes walking distance. Once we got there, and met Chef Alexandra, we were amazed how the atmosphere was relaxing and pleasant. We took part in a four-course dinner prepared by Alexandra from Food Motion that allows you to be as... More

Thank you, Chef Alex, for teaching our group of six some wonderful Mexican recipes! Chef Alex came with all the groceries needed for the menu we chose and was a great teacher of techniques and recipes. We enjoyed a terrific meal and will enjoy trying to duplicate the food now that we are home. You can tell Chef Alex is... More

To kick up the playa family trip we hired Food motion to take care of a dinner in our condo. Chef Fernando put together a top notch meal. He was also extremely pleasant and informative both about food and life in playa. The kids really enjoyed his company, including his lemonada recipe that they have tried already on their own....

Chef Fernando came and cooked us a great meal, narrating each step so I could write it down. We helped as chefs and learned a lot from him. He was helpful and flexible when our oven in our condo wouldn't light. I really enjoyed this and we are going home with great recipes!

Chef Alexandra prepared several meals for us to have during our week at our timeshare in Playa del Carmen. All her food was delicious - especially the ceviche, the Chilmole beef tenderloin with a surprising sauce, a mango cheesecake, and achiote seasoned fish. She happily accommodated our level of spiciness and was fun, articulate and talented. We all agreed that... More
