Our group of four throughouly enjoyed our day with Helene. She was a terrific host who made us feel comfortable in her beautiful home while we helped prepare multiple dishes. We learned new recipes and cooking techniques while learning about her life in PV. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a more personal, small group cooking experience. It was a relaxing and fun way to spend the day.

"Manu" was our guide and chef. My pal and I met up with Manu at his PV Old Town area house. We then walked a couple short blocks to the Fish and Produce market. The fresh fish was amazing, at least 5 different sizes/kinds of Shrimp, Red Snapper and others and even smoked Mahi. Then on to the produce, salad ingredients, veggies, fruit. On to fresh queso, eggs, and butter. We had a double suite with a full kitchen, so great to get extra fresh seafood and veggies. Manu showed us how to take dried chillis, roast and re-hydrate and make delicious sauce for our shrimp enchiladas and pork toastadas. Delicious!! The aromas in his quaint kitchen were amazing. Sea Bass Ceviche was so easy and tasty! He was so personable, a wonderful chef and teacher. We had such a lovely afternoon, heading back to the Marina with happily full tummies. Thank you, Manu!!
