“Chef Claudia Garcia Ramos is fabuloso!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2011

We had the most awesome experience today in Chef Claudia's kitchen. She and her husband Lorenzo welcomed us into their home for a phenomenal dining experience. We tasted home made Mexican cuisine at it's best and were entertained by their french bulldog. All right in front of us - we even got to make salsa (3 ways) and corn tortillas using an antigue tortilla press. If you are visiting Cancun, you must sign up for this great food and historial mexican experience. Chef Claudia has years of cooking and excellent credentials. Mi cocina es tu cocina is exactly as stated.

“Great cooking experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2011

We are planning another trip to Cancun and a return to Claudia's Cooking Class is a must do on my list of things to do on our trip.She is very skillful, professional and entertaining. The class is in her beautiful home, complete with both a professional indoor kitchen and a delightful outdoor kitchen and dining facility. She manages to give a lot of interesting history of the food and cooking utensils while teaching us how to make a lovely authentic meal. It is a great social event as well as educational and would appeal to all ages.

“What a great experience. A must do in Cancun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2011

Chef Claudia and her husband treated us to the best Mexican food we've had. The school housed in their home in a residential section of Cancun Chef Claudia spent five hours with us (six students) discussing the history of Mexico, Mexican cooking, family, and anything else that interested us with a glass of cerveza. She explained the background of Mexican food, detail explanations of ingredients, and sample tasting of ingredients. A multicourse offering turned out to be out of this world. Her course starts with appetizer, soup , entre dish, and capped with a desert and a glass of reposado tequila. What a wonderful way to spend a Mexican afternoon. Must take a camera. Chef Claudia provides detailed recipes take home with you. We enjoyed it so much that we will definitely try it again on our next trip to Cancun.

“Fabulous food and a lovely visit to a Mexican home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2011

Spent the day (10 to 3) at Dona Claudia’s home, and I can’t decide what was better: the cultural lesson gently delivered, or the fabulous food. It was special to be in someone’s home and hearing a little family history, and a lot about Mexican traditional cuisine. Dona Claudia, Don Lorenzo, and all their helpers were knowledgeable, gracious, helpful and friendly. For someone with a lengthy resume Dona Claudia was amazingly unprententious and down-to-earth. Having taken some classes at the Culinary Institute’s home base in Hyde Park, NY, where the professionals can be pretty starchy, I was very pleasantly surprised by her natural approach. This was a lovely day, and may I add, an excellent value. I will certainly return if I can get back to Cancun. Our hotel (Royal Resorts) arranged the transportation which was also helpful.

“Loved it! Really recommend it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2011

http://cancookincancun.com/index.htm is the website. It is a little hard to find on google for some reason. The class was very interesting, really enjoyed the way that it was presented. Her family and her home are beautiful!! The stories/history behind the food were very interesting. It is a full day - plan on being there by 9:30 (allow time for the cab to find it). You will be done by 3ish.
