Can't recommend it enough.
May 2021
I had an absolutely wonderful time at Casa Jacaranda. The tour through the market offered some interesting and important context to the different corners of Mexican food culture and the produce that we would be using (chiles!), and once we got into the kitchen everyone was able to indulge in the joys of cooking as well as a kitchen full of agreeable company. Through it all, Beto and Jorge were excellent hosts and always kept us enlightened, entertained, and refreshed (with alcohol, though I'm sure there were other options). I came out of it feeling that I could pick up at home and recreate everything myself, which is not always the case - though, I haven't yet proven this to be the case.

Can't recommend it enough.

Fantastic
Mar 2021 • Couples
What a terrific day we spent with Beto! We highly recommend Casa Jacaranda. Beto is a great chef and teacher, and fun to be around.
The lesson started with a trip to the market, which was really enjoyable. We learned a lot about various chiles and other spices from various regions of Mexico.
Back at the house, we spent several hours preparing mole, tamales, salsas, tortillas, sopas, and more. Beto taught us about technique, recipes, and Mexican history.
We finished with a feast of our own creation on the house's rooftop deck next to a beautiful jacaranda. We were there in late March and the jacarandas were still in bloom.
FWIW, Beto speaks English fluently; you do not need to speak Spanish.
Highly recommend.

Highlight of CDMX
Mar 2021 • Solo
I had a blast cooking with Beto and the knowledge I gained is something I will cherish for a long time as well as share with others. I will definitely cook all of these recipes at home. This was definitely a highlight of my time in CDMX and I will never forget it. Thank you, Beto and Casa Jacaranda for an amazing experience!

Holy molé !
The day kicked off with amazing coffee at the market with Jorge while he explained to us the history of the market, and more specifically, piñatas. We tasted our way through the market where Jorge clearly has really genuine relationships with the stall owners. Next thing we know, we’re

Amazing - The best part of our Mexico City vacation
Oct 2020
My family of 2 adults and 4 young kids (10/8/8/3) spent a day in October with Beto and Jorge, and it was really fantastic! We had a great time at the market, learning about and tasking local ingredients but the highlight by far was the class itself. Beto & Jorge, along with their whole team made this the highlight of our Mexico City vacation. They were really great about making everything accessible for all of the kids who all had a great time. The food was amazing, and we had such a nice time just hanging out and talking the whole time, it was really like cooking with some old friends. We've done this sort of thing a few times on our international trips, we highly recommend cooking classes like this for a great family activity and Casa Jacaranda stands out as one of the very best!

My favourite day in Mexico City!
Oct 2019
Me and my best friend did a cooking day a Casa Jacaranda and we both LOVED it!
They were so welcoming, hosted the class in their own home - doesn't get more intimate, authentic and local than that.
I would 100% come back and do another one next time I am in Mexico City!

Amazing experience
Jan 2020
Just about to depart CDMX after a perfect week exploring the wonderful and contrasting neighbourhoods. We have eaten our way through the city but our favourite meal by far was the one we created with the help of the lovely and talented chef, Beto, at Casa Jacaranda. The experience at Casa Jacaranda is unparalleled. Our morning began with a tour through a local market where Beto explained the basics of the gastronomic history and showed us many of the different produce and other foods specific to Mexico. We then returned to his beautiful and perfectly curated home in Roma. There, we got to work and made our delicious meal. It wasn't all work, there was beer and tequila and cocktails along the way, as well as many wonderful stories. We then enjoyed a late lunch on the lovely roof top of his home. Perfection, really. Gushing....

A full day of shopping, cooking and eating
Jan 2020
Our group of three loved this cooking class--starting at the market and finishing at the Casa Jacaranda for cooking and eating. It was a full day--don't plan much else that same evening--and wear comfy shoes as you will be doing a lot of standing while at the market. Beto was a wonderful teacher, guide, chef and host. The food was amazing and the ambiance at Casa Jacaranda itself was magical.

If you do one thing in Mexico City, you must take a cooking class at Casa Jacaranda!
Jan 2020
If you do one thing in Mexico City, you must take a cooking class at Casa Jacaranda. This was the highlight of my Mexico City trip!

Our small group met Jorge at a local market where we sampled cheese, coffee, salsas, chocolate, tacos, and other amazing produce. Jorge is an amazing storyteller with fantastic energy - during our market tour he shared more about the history of Mexico City, the food & culture. We then walked to his stunning home, where we met his husband Beto and began cooking. We prepared mole, tacos (with homemade tortillas), tamales & salsas. The food was some of the best we had in Mexico City (I swear, the mole was better than Pujol's!). Each person had enough cooking duties to stay busy, while also enjoying a beer and each other's company. We ate our meal together on Jorge & Beto's unbelievably gorgeous roof deck, drinking homemade palomas and Mexican wine. We ended the experience with a mezcal tasting.

Thank you for the incredibly special experience, Jorge & Beto! I can't wait to return to CDMX.

Oh Lauren… our casa is your casa! I feel honored that I was able to make you fall for mole… and for a few other things Mexico. Come back soon! Best regards, Jorge Fitz
