This was our second time to go to cooking classes with Claudia and her husband Lorenzo. A lovely home, very fun and interesting. I came home with lots of new dinner ideas and the food is authentic, and fresh. What a feast we had that day too eating everything! Lovely time. We will definitely go again!

Chef Claudia and her husband make this a real hands on -not commercial--experience and knowledge of authentic Mayan/Mexican cooking in her beautiful home. We learned about culture as well as cuisine..as part of this experience the couple leaves you with a CD full of photos and recipes (you didn't learn in class) and an apron...this was completely worth the money...

Starting with a warm welcome from Lorenzo and ending with a great meal, this day was a delight from start to finish. I really LEARNED a lot about beautiful Mexico as well as wonderful cooking tips and instructions. Chef Claudia is amazing and a wealth of knowledge mixed with humor and education. The hands on was just another tool to... More

We have been to Cancun a number of times but this was the first time we have been here I only wish we would have done it sooner. We had a great time, Claudia and her family were wonderful! We felt like we were at home and learned so many things. I have already tried making things at home and... More

This was my first class with Chef Claudia and it won't be the last! I had a fabulous day with Claudia and her staff and made new friends. Everyone is so welcoming and eager to share. I came alone and never felt isolated at all. The food we prepared was delicious and I have recreated several dishes at home with... More

If you want to understand traditional Mexican culture at the same time you are learning how to prepare traditional recipes, visit the home of Chef Claudia and her husband Lorenzo. By the time you leave (about 5 hours later) you will appreciate the distinctive features that make Mexican food so unique. You will also understand how varied the cuisine is... More

Claudia and her husband and staff were very welcoming and the setting is so beautiful. If you go to Cancun, you want... More

I thought the day was fabulous. Claudia was well informed about Mexico's history as well as about nutritional information that we needed to hear. Their home was welcoming, the kitchen set up excellent so that we could learn each step that she carefully explained. I'm now trying to figure out how to attend another session when we return to the... More

For the fun, the food and the learning experience Can Cook was the highlight of our latest Cancun vacation. Don't eat heavy meals the day before you go so that you can truly enjoy all of the tasty treats that will be created and eaten during your culinary lesson. Part of the unique aspects of this experience was to be... More
