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.

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.

What an amazing bit of luck, to find one of the best cooking schools we've ever been to, in my favorite town of La Paz, MX. The instructors were patient, informative and wonderful coaches. The classes worked well for my husband, who is quite the gourmet chef,as well as for myself, and I generally don't like to cook... We will definitely try out these recipies at home. The fun, family like atmosphere between all of us students trying to learn, added to the adventure. The menu featured traditional meals, explained thoroughly by our talented instructors who provided us with both a historical and cultural context for the food we prepared. In all honesty I have never eaten better Mexican food... and we prepared it ourselves... with plenty of left overs to take home. I'm going back next Fall for more classes!

I attended one of Denise and Renee's cooking classes back in January and it was a highlight to my trip. If you want to learn how to learn about and cook authentic Mexican food, have a lot of fun, meet new and interesting people and have an amazing meal when all the work is done, I can't recommend this place enough. I will definitely be signing up for weekly classes next time I return.

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.

We went to one of the first classes taught at Buen Provecho in La Paz. Chef Denise and cultural guide Renée are a delight. They are great teachers, focusing on food, culture and history of Mexican cuisine. We cooked one of the best fish dishes (ever) that was a pleasure to share with the whole cooking class. And that, along with all the other fantastic dishes and learning, was just the beginning. We will definitely go back and learn more on our next visit to La Paz.

I recently had three gastronomically fabulous, five-star meals at Buen Provecho in La Paz and the best part was I helped prepare them all with the help and guidance of Chef Denise Elliott complimented by the delightful cultural and historical grounding on Mexican food provided by Renee Lagloire! Armed with a truly amazing array of local provisions, delectable recipes and a wonderful assortment of other students we managed to turn out meals that were simply fabulous. At each of my 3 cooking classes, I also made a host of new "friends", learned to make everything from tortillas to mango sorbet and had the time of my life. If any of the readers of this review ever get within 100 miles of La Paz I would would only say, "if you miss "Buen Provecho, it will be a real shame".
