What a fantastic day our group of 3 couples had at Los Dos. It was a wonderful learning experience of the food and culture of the Yucatan. The house is beautiful Chef Mario provides a warm welome for everyone and provides a fun and educational day about the Yucatan. My husband and I took the class 10 years ago with David Sterling and he would be proud of what is being provideed at Los Dos today. Our entire group that this was the highlight of our trip.

We made a Street Food tasting reservation for mid-January 6 weeks in advance. It took 2 weeks to get a response to our query. A week prior, I emailed for a reconfirmation & received a response @ 6:30am on the day of the class, saying that it was on, but that because the assistant failed to send an invoice we must pay in cash, which was 6300 pesos. We canceled because of the lack of attention to basic details & completely unprofessional business practice. The only immediate response came now with an explanation blaming the assistant for all the issues. What a disappointment!

My husband and I were experienced to a fabulous day by Chef Mario and his amazing support staff (including his lovely wife who acted as his sous chef/right-hand-woman). Short version: We ate, we experienced Merida and the region's culture in a way we wouldn't have on our own, had an amazing time, and ordered the books (too heavy to carry home). We never experienced Los Dos under the late Chef Sterling, but I can't imagine it would have been better. Long version: Our day started with a lovely light breakfast and informative and fascinating lecture/discussion with Chef Mario on the history of the Yucatan, it's cultural influences, and how those inform it's cuisine. Then we were off for an all too-short walk around the San Sebastian market with more talking about ingredients, history, and culture as we encountered them (and ate some of them). A quick cab ride back to Los Dos delivered us into the kitchen and the hands-on preparation of an amazing lunch (of course, to make sure everyone could get home at a reasonable hour, much the preliminary prep work like chopping was done while we were at the market). We ate lunch in some majesty in the beautiful dining room, admiring the murals and discussing the day. At each step, Mario provided invaluable guidance and insights into the why and how of the preparations. A highlight was, of course, trying our hands at making tortillas. Dona Lupita and Chef Mario were kind enough not too laugh too hard at our efforts. We'll be practicing so we'll be better the next visit!

We had a great day and good experience with Mario Canul who took over the Los Dos Cooking School after the untimely death of Mr Sterling. We visited the Mercado Central to buy the ingredients for tradition Yucatecan meal which was delicious. Gracias Mario! We will be back and I have recommended the experience to my friends. Bravo.

Los Dos cooking experience with Chef Mario Canul... was fantastic!!! I highly recommend this as a highlight to visiting Mérida. His knowledge and cultural expertise gave such a better insight into the Mayan lifestyle of the past. Chef Mario breaks it down. I walked away full!!! With flavors of Kings, & knowledge of combining herbs, fruits, crushed seeds, vegetables, along with step by step recipes to recreate our meal. I feel confident sharing these dishes with friends and family as I cook them at home. Cheers to Gaby and Elena that made the day special! Including time at Mérida Market! To much to say! “Muy Contento!!!
