Starting with a tour of their orchard and flowing to the history of the ingredients that will be used to make dinner, Denise and Renee provide a fantastic afternoon of food and information. Well organized, in a beautiful location, the drive from Todos Santos goes through wonderful mountain and desert scenery, you leave overstuffed with excellent food and great recipes.

This is definitely worth the drive to this rustic cooking and cultural experience in San Bartolo, Baja. It's a short drive from San Jose del Cabo, or just 90 minutes from La Paz, via a scenic drive over the mountains. Yes, the cooking lessons are amazing. The approach provides all students with hands on experience making the full multi course meal, led by culinary and patient expert ( for us novices) , Denise. It's, a fun learning experience What is also special is the cultural lessons Renee, an anthropologist , provides around the history and cultural implications of the foods you prepare. It is a bonus cultural anthropology review of Mexico... Fascinating. The school is located down a short dirt road, on a 2.5 orchard full of grapefruit, mangos and other fruits from this region. This is a wonderful day trip that you won't forget. All levels of cooking experience are welcome.

My husband and I and 5 of our friends and neighbors went to Buen Provecho Baja. We had a fantastic time laughing learning and cooking. We learned how to cook some amazing delicious mexican meals. Not only did we learn to cook them but we learned about the origin of the dish and the history of each ingredient in the dishes we cooked. Denise and Renee were wonderful teachers of the art of cooking and the history of the food we were cooking. If you have the opportunity to visit Buen Provecho I highly suggest you do so. The new location is beautiful, the orchard is lovely and the fresh grapefruit, mandarins, mangos and Hoja Santa among many other delicious things is an added bonus to the wonderful meals they teach. Everything tasted delicious. Thank you ladies for a wonderful day, delicious food and the learning experience. I will definitely be back to learn more.

I spent Christmas Eve at a cooking class at Buen Provecho with my husband and 4 friends plus the hosts Denise and Renee and their helper Jessie. Denise explained what we could be cooking and Renee gave us the cultural and historical backgrounds for the ingredients and the dishes. We were then divided into teams, given recipes and set to work. The result was a veritable feast - pozole, traditional Christmas Eve salad, turkey mole, cheese, tomatillo and rajas tamales plus all sorts of things to go along with them and a huge bonus - mango sorbet and 3 Kings Bread. This was a great introduction to the cooking of Mexico and I would highly recommend Buen Provecho to anyone who likes to cook, eat and learn about other cultures. Another wonderful thing was everyone was encouraged to take home leftovers - let the feasting continue!

Chef Denise and cultural expert Renee have created the perfect package at Buen Provecho. Not only do you learn the significance of the ingredients you will be using and the food you are preparing, you also enjoy the fruits of your labour at the end of the class. They even send you home with the leftovers! The kitchen is well-laid out and very well equipped, making the hands on experience comfortable and easy to navigate. I had a great time learning at Buen Provecho and will definitely be returning! Thank you Denise and Renee.
