Myself, my husband and our 2 best friends took a private cooking class from Chef Francisco. It was fabulous!!! We made margaritas, guacamole, red and green salsas, tamales, pork skewers, and beef shank wrapped in banana leafs. We had so much delicious food. Our host and his helpers could not have been more gracious. We learned a lot and are hopefully going to recreate our chefs creations. Thanks so much. I highly recommend this experience.

Listen, this was my first time to Puerto Vallarta, but it won't be my last. Enrique was awesome! He took me to the local market, picked up ingredients, took us to his home, and showed me how to make multiple sauces, multiple dishes, and a perfect margarita. He even gave me the history of the drink! WORTH EVERY DIME...AND PESO!

I recently did the cooking class w/ Chef Enrique and I had an amazing time! I learned SO MUCH during our walk around the market and we made a delicious green mole/pozole, along with some delicious tamales. I can't wait to cook this recipe back home. HIGHLY recommend for anyone who is interested in learning how to cook and the importance of food to Mexican culture.
