Feels like you’re with family
Oct 2021 • Family
Spending the evening with Lily was like being with family. We laughed, we learned and we ate…amazing food.

The recipes were simple and the ingredients were quality. We definitely learned a few new cooking techniques that will wow our family back home.

Our kids had a blast and tried new foods. We would highly recommend this experience!

The best time!
Oct 2021
I can not say enough great things about this excursion. We had so much fun making all of the dishes and especially interacting with Lilly and her family. We talked about the history of Mexican food and then learned how to prepare them using repeatable and straightforward techniques. The food was so good, and the Lily is excellent at making everyone feel comfortable. By far, this was the best excursion, and I highly recommend it.

Getting to know real Mexican food
Sep 2021
This was my favorite part of my extended trip to Tulum. Yes, you can eat a lot of good local food throughout Tulum, but this cooking class was a great intro to some lesser known foods to try. I also learned a lot about local ingredients and was more knowledgeable going to the market with what I now know. Lily is WONDERFUL and made the evening even better than it already was. She is very knowledgeable and add interesting history and anecdotes to the evening.

Such a good experience would do it again 10/10
Sep 2021 • Couples
Lily is an amazing hostess that knows cooking, lets you taste and the raw ingredients and explain why they are added and what that will bring to the collective food experience. Such a sweet and welcoming lady that knows a lot about history too. the atmosphere in her home is relaxed and you feel welcome in it and in Mexico. Mescal tasting was amazing too! Overall such a good experience would do it again 10/10. Amalie & Anders, Denmark

Awesome cooking experience
Sep 2021 • Couples
My boyfriend and I decided to take this class while in Tulum because we love cooking together. I have to admit that I was a little nervous because I was waking into a stranger’s home, but we instantly felt like family once we arrived. Lily is great at sharing the history of food and at explaining the whys and how’s of cooking. The meal turned out great and we can’t wait to cook it at home for our family.

Cannot Pass This Up!
Sep 2021
"Give a man a fish and you feed them for a day, but teach a man to fish and you feed them for life." Tulum has no shortage of great food, but getting the opportunity to learn how to make local food from scratch is above and beyond anything else we experienced in town. Lily is an extremely gracious host and it is possible not to be drawn in by her passion for making food and teaching others how to do so. I don't think I could recommend a trip to Tulum without this experience.

10/10 Must Do In Tulum
Sep 2021
10/10. This was one of my favorite experiences in Tulum. You are picked up in Tulum and taken to Lily's house where you are treated like family. Lily has the entire experience down to a science, perfectly timing everything to make the experience seamless and effortless. You get your hands dirty doing some food prep and help to make some of the food. We even got a mezcal to drink and try crickets (totally optional). Would do this again in a heartbeat.

Book this! Lilly is awesome!
Jun 2021 • Friends
Wonderful hospitality, and AMAZING food. Lilly is so sweet and knows her stuff, she's got great cooking skills as well as great knowledge of good ingredients and the history of Mexican cooking. This home-cooked meal was simple and seriously delicious and the experience is probably my favorite part of my trip to Tulum.
