Great fun. We did three days of classes at Sacristia. Each day was three hours of preparation, conversation, cooking and eating. Liz is very knowledgeable and gives very good procedural instruction before cutting you loose in the kitchen. A trip to the market gave us insight to local cuisine. We also were given additional options for entertainment and viewing to... More

Our class was a terrific introduction to authentic recipes and techniques. I'm a serious home cook, and I've cooked from many "authentic" recipes, including mole poblano; however, the two days of classes we took put everything in context, I picked up new techniques as well. We were so inspired that we went out in search of a comal to bring... More

I attended one class, but had initially signed up for three. Prior to signing up i asked what I would be making. I was advised the chef would decide on the day of the class. The pros: the kitchen is great, you get to practice/or learn Spanish while cooking as the chef will instruct you in Spanish and his assistant... More

The class lasts about 4 hrs and it's totally worth every penny. I just wished that I took more classes. The chef was courteous and professional and Lisbet, the assistant, is... More

I don't like spicy food but still enjoyed it. Bring you own bell peppers from the market to substitute for their peppers. They could use a warmer to keep entrees warm til dessert and drink items are made.

We took a 5 day cooking course here and enjoyed every minute. Two women from Austrailia were our classmates and added a lot of fun to the experience. Lizbet, the interpreter couldn't do enough for us, and Antonio was always pleasant and happy to share his expertise. A hands on experience for participants. Staying at the colourful hotel where the... More

I highly recommend this cooking school, not only for what you will learn, but also for a very fun and entertaining experience. I hope to... More
