About
Hola y muy bienvenidos! As in all cultures, those born and raised in the society are the best source of knowledge about traditions. As a Mexican native, I inherited my Mexican cuisine knowledge from my previous generations. And my passion too! From my earliest years, I watched my mother, my aunts and grandparents in the kitchen, so I invite you to join me, to use the very fresh ingredients of our Mexican Cuisine, and recreate together those delicious dishes. I love sharing my knowledge about one of the most varied and delicious cuisines in the world. I take pride in customizing my classes to suit the needs of all students -that don't have to stick to a fix classes program calendar. Contact us to arrange your own hands-on class. Classes are from Monday thru Friday, starting at 10:30 am. A minimum number of students apply for each class. We offer special intensive courses of 3 days, 1 week or 2 weeks.
Duration: 2-3 hours

We took a cooking class from Marilau today and it was worth the cost of the class for the tips, tricks, cooking insights, and historical references to the food we were preparing. Marilau is a pleasure to spend time with and really knows her stuff. She references and explains the whole process; why we’re doing what we’re doing in the kitchen. We very much enjoyed this cooking class and we’ve taken them all over the world.

Our family of 9 adults took Marilau's cooking class. It was an unforgettable experience. Marilau is so knowledgeable about the food traditions of Mexico and shared so much with us. She answered all our questions. The dishes we prepared were delicious! I would love to take another class with her!!!

We are former restaurateurs and educators. It is one thing to be good at what you do, but it is another skill set to be able to teach that subject to others. Marilau knows her craft and she knows how to teach it. We took a class from Marilau with two others who are also educators with decades of restaurant experience. Her teaching style is fun and informative for aspiring cooks of all levels. Take a class from Marilau and you will come away with a feeling of accomplishment. You will take away knowledge that you can apply in you own kitchen. Thanks, Marilau!

It’s been tough during the pandemic. But glad to see things are slowly getting back to normal in San Miguel. Marilau’s cooking class was such a delight. The food was amazing, but the experience was superb. She made us feel welcomed to her kitchen like we’ve known each other for ever. We learned traditional Mexican recipes with authentic and delicious flavors. Definitely recommend her classes, especially if you are in a big group of family and/or friends.

What a wonderful experience. Marilau facilitated not only a special Mexican culinary experience but also an in depth cooking class. I've been cooking for decades but Marilau reminded me of the subtle differences timing makes in developing flavour and how attention to detail creates layers of sublime flavours. For those that come to San Miguel de Allende and wonder where the authentic Mexican cooking is.... it's in Marilau's kitchen and the reason you will find few authentic Mexican meals is that this cuisine takes time and what Marilau calls 'respect'. A remarkable cooking experience not to be forgotten, a reminder that food needs time and respect to bring the flavours forward.

Talk about amazing. I bought this cooking class for my mother and I for Christmas. I am so glad that I did my research and chose this class.

We learnt many things and loved Marilau’s approach and organization.

The FOOD! Omg the layers of taste the love she has for it, the care she takes while teaching and cooking is exceptional.

You have to go. 10/10 for sure. Lovely lady, lovely space. My mother is staying here for months and is booking another class with her because yes it’s better than any restaurant you will try and then you can make it back at home.

Book it, don’t hesitate.
AMAZING!

Marilau is an amazing teacher and the food was delicious. We were 3 friends, all experienced cooks, but we learned a lot about authentic Mexican cooking and traditions. We were able to participate in each step and taste everything as we cooked. Marilau made the experience fun and is a wealth of knowledge!

There were only three people in our class of tamale making. Marilau is a wonderful teacher who is extremely knowledgeable of traditional Mexican cooking. She knows the history of the Mexican cooking from all parts of Mexico and shares this knowledge as she explains the methods of preparing the food. It is a very hands on class with prepared recipes to keep and practice at home.

My wife and I are both teachers, and agree that Marilau is a superb teacher. She explains very step in the recipes. We learned how to make mole and rice. Mole is complex with many ingredients. She teaches you how to make each one,in what combinations, in what order, and with the correct pans. We constantly tasted the mole after we added each ingredient so we could understand how the flavor changed. The mole we ate was phenomenal. Marilau clearly loves Mexican food and took the time to explain its origins, complexity, and evolution. This is an unforgettable experience!

This was a highlight of my trip to San Miguel. I took the mole class - which was excellent. Marilau is more than just a superb chef and cooking teaching. She is also a great storyteller and our class was filled with her love of family and Mexican culture.
