We strolled to the local marketplace where Juan introduced us to the unique flavors of Mexico. We tasted exotic fruits and local candies and tamales, meeting fascinating... More

We booked the class thru the Belmond hotel. We had a fun and fabulous experience. The menu was perfect - easy and wonderful and so delicious . Plus - we so much enjoyed meeting and working with Chef Ruben Yanez. He has a great kitchen and gave us so many tips on how to prepare the menu at home. This... More

We had the most amazing and delicous dinner with Reuben! My four kids (ages 9, 11, 13, and 15) and I followed Reuben to the market for food tasting and a tour, and then back to the kitchen for the best meal we had on San Miguel, recipes included. I fell in love with San Miguel all over again!!

We attended several cooking classes this trip and this one was a favorite. The price was fair, the chef was very accommodating and fun to cook with, the recipes were excellent and the meal at the end was fabulous. I would absolutely take a class with Sazon again.

Fun way to learn about authentic Mexican ingredients and how to cook with them. Chef Ruben did an excellent job across the board. I highly recommend this for both the ladies and the men. Will definitely do this again when I return to SMA!

Great time learning about, cooking and then eating a fantastic meal! Chef Rueben is very knowledgeable on Mexican cuisine and effortlessly switched between English and Spanish for our bilingual class. Great time. I recommend you skip breakfast prior to attending! You will want to be hungry!

This was a fun activity. The chef Ruben shows you not only hometown SMA but is an amazing chef. We cooked 4 amazing recipes. The experience was as interactive as you wanted it to be. I was all over being his sous chef. Some participants were more observers and they also enjoyed it just as much. You get an insiders... More
