My husband and I had a lovely time at Claudia’s cooking class. Her company sent us confirmation the night before of what time the transport van would pick us up at our hotel (additional cost). We paid cash at the time of the transport. I highly recommend getting picked up, as her home could be hard to find on your own. Again, We paid cash in USD at the end of the class.

The class is very informative. Claudia will discuss the different flavors of Mexico and how they differ based on location. Then, it’s time to get hands on. Everyone has the opportunity to participate. Be ready to eat because you will leave stuffed! She will greet you with cafe de hoya and a pastry. We had churros! Then, she will start with salsas and other items on the menu (different foods based on season and other factors). Her assistants even cut up fresh fruit for us and offered us two different agua frescas (Horchata and Jamaica). We made tamales, tortillas, and soup amongst other items. Before we sat down to eat all the delicious food, she gave us a tequila shot and explained the different types of tequila. After lunch, we had an Avocado Panacotta dessert that was amazing! At the end of the class, she even gave us a souvenir. Her home is lovely.

Claudia is fluent in English. By the end of the class, everyone will be friends.

Claudia was an amazing tour guide and chef. We had a lot of fun learning to make authentic Mexican food and can’t wait to share with friends and family back home.

We brought our two teens along with minimal cooking experience and they feel like they can make these recipes at home too! The rice pudding was the star of the meal.

We highly recommend!

We had a very nice cooking class with Claudia and her staff. Everything was well organized and the atmosphere was welcoming, relaxed and friendly. Claudias garden is beautiful and the food was really good.

We took the class on the last day of our trip, but I would recommend to go during the first days so that you have time to utilize what you learned.

Whenever we are in Cancun, my brothers, sister and partners always make sure that we take a class with chef Claudia. We have never been disappointed and this year was no exception.

We tried something new this year, and accompanied by chef Claudia we ventured out to Valladolid to experience a typical Mexican market. Chef Claudia explained all the different fruits and vegetables and how they were used in a typical Mexican cooking.

We had a delightful Mexican breakfast along side a cenote. We also toured casa de los venados. This was an incredible house with numerous works of art.

There was ample time to stroll along the city center and shop.

We finished the day with a delightful dinner at a local restaurant in which chef Claudia helped us choose classic Mexican dishes.

Everyone had a great time ... as usual. We most assuredly will do another adventure with chef Claudia next year when we return.

Hola Chris. It was such a pleasure to have you and your wonderful family for your private tour to Valladolid. We like to show off the many wonders we have in the area, beyond the beautiful beaches. So happy to know you all had a good time and to have you back again this year. We are already planning something new and awesome for next year. Thank you so much for writing this review.

We were a group of 5 who attended the class in Claudia's lovely home. There were approximately 12 all together in the group. We had some amazing food while learning not just about cooking, but also the culture of Mexican food. There were hands on experiences, some individually and some the entire group. We were given the menus and recipes to take home, and took lots of notes. Claudia had some of the ingredients for sale, and gave us tips on where to find other ingredients. I would highly recommend this for cooks and for people who enjoy good eating!

After 2 years of COVID protocols forced Chef Claudia to redesign her private cooking class, I was thrilled to be able to reach out on their website and within hours, I received an email from Lorenzo containing potential dates, class details and several options. Cooking was exceptional and easy to see, learn and do! Lorenzo coordinated transport but always lets you schedule your own if you want. Mari was back from shoulder surgury and the team was back! We are beyond pleased as everyone who has been to Claudia's Class become family and her home a sanctuary to relax and renew and re-investment in yourself. Thank you Claudia for sopas, pozole, tamales, churros, empanadas and Mexican Memories that leaves its mark on all of your senses! Well done!

The class is held at Claudia's house, which is a charming, mellow, lovely setting. Claudia is a pleasure to be with as well as skillful and knowledgeable. You can participate hands-on or just watch and listen. I was there with my husband, daughter, son-in-law and teenage grandson; every one of us had a wonderful time.

I’ve been to a few but always return to Claudia. She is warm, bright, generous and fun. Lots to learn -going to the market was a new and exciting adventure. We bought things we needed for our cooking class eye opening. And we made new friends who shared the day with us. I highly recommend this deceptively easy cooking class and market tour with the wonderful Claudia. It / she becomes family

A friend and I had a wonderful day with Claudia, learning about Mexican food, what is unique, and where certain foods originate from. We enjoyed the hands-on approach. Claudia took time in the beginning of the day to get to know us. Then she gave us an informative history of Mexican cuisine. It wasn't long before we were helping make our meal. The hands-on approach was a lot of fun, and everyone in our group participated eagerly. Claudia shared information about tequila and we all had an opportunity to try several types. And our meal was fabulous. Claudia was very willing to answer any of our questions. We left with recipes to try on our own. It was a fabulous day.

From welcoming to the end it was a great program. Going to the local market was a special inside experience. Claudia arranged cooking at her home, which was a perfect setup, lovely place. Food we prepared was excellent and we also got them in prints. After cooking everything we had a wonderful lunch. Overall it was excellent, I would do it again. Whoever is interested in Mexican culinary and culture should not miss out this event!
