“Can Cook and Eat and Drink and Have Fun in Cancun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

My second trip to Claudia and Lorenzo's lovely home in Cancun was even more memorable than my first! Claudia and Lorenzo and their lovely helpers are delightful hosts and the food is outstanding! We went the day after Thanksgiving and had the best turkey I've ever eaten! After learning how easy and delicious it is to make your own tortillas, I came home, bought a tortilla press and have not had store bought tortillas since. Enjoying a glass of sangria or shot of tequila while dining and socializing with new friends around their beautifully decorated outdoor table was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in paradise! It's a day (and money) well spent in Cancun.

“Best tour in Cancun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

If you're looking for an exceptional tour while in Cancun, check out Mi Cocina es Tu Cocina. Steve and I enjoyed a very special Thanksgiving-2012 with Chef Claudia and her husband, Lorenzo. It's an all day affair learning about the different culinary offerings of the various regions of Mexico. Chef Claudia and her experienced staff took us through a hands-on journey preparing authentic salsas, tortillas, empanadas, tamales, salad, Mexican rice casserole, and a moist delicious, seasoned turkey. We also tasted a local brew, a variety of juices, and finished with a tequila toast and an exceptional Three Milk Cake. This was definitely the highlight of our trip and we're already using what we learned! Chef Claudia's kitchen is your kitchen, and we will definitely visit again and bring some friends or family along for this Mexican culinary adventure!

“Mexican family cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

My husband and I went with some friends to Claudia and Lorenzo's home to learn more Mexican cooking tips. This was our second visit and just as successful as the first. We learned a lot and then sat down to eat all that had been prepared. Some we watched being fixed and some we helped with. We learn much more than just the recipe since so many questions are raised. Much more fun than just going to a restaurant. Lorenzo and Claudia are great hosts.

“Excellent day with plenty of cooking, eating and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

My wife and I did this experience on Thanksgiving Day 2012. We had a great day. The class is actually in the home of the chef and her husband in Cancun. The day started off with muffins and coffees which were both great. We then went into the house and started education session of the day. Claudia (the chef) goes through detail on Mexican cooking and the various regions. We then went right into cooking and eating. The menu was focused on Thanksgiving so we had turkey, rice casserole, salad, tamales, guacamole, tortillas and multiple salsas. We worked on preparing the salas, rice casserole, tamalas, guacamole and tortillas. Claudia, Lorenzo (her husband) and her staff were great. The food and experience was wonderful. We were so fortunate to come across this on Trip Advisor. It was great way to spend Thanksgiving away from our family. I highly recommend this when you visit Cancun and we plan to do it again in the future.

“Even guys will love this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Two couples (yes, including hubbies) attended this fun,educational and fine ciliary class. We learned about Mexican history, culture, and gastronomic delights. We learned, we helped cook and then dined in a home setting that made it intimate and more memorable. The food and drink were excellent and we ate our fill plus came away with menus and memories of a most enjoyable experience. We loved it and can highly recommend the class as it can be enjoyed on so many levels. Don't miss this opportunity to expand your understanding and palette for fine Mexican food.
