Kris Rudolph was incredible and her knowledge of Mexico's cuisine was amazing and the history of the country and her wonderful shared antedotes were priceless. Her hands on cooking approach was just what I wanted, I actually learned how to prepare a great mexican meal for my friends.Her home and authenic kitchen were perfect and memorable.

As first time visitors to SMA, my husband and I wanted to learn about regional food. We had a great time and learned so much about the history of Mexican cuisine. If you want to take a cooking class, this is the one!

My husband and I wanted to take a class especially to learn how to make mole. Kris and La Cocina offered this on Thursdays but since Kris was going to be out on the Thursday we were in town, she kindly changed her schedule to Friday. Not only is she accommodating, she is very knowledgeable about Mexican cooking (and other... More

Margaritas with our dinner were served once we completed cooking. My teenager had lemonade. In Chicago area... More

My party of four just had a wonderful day with Kris, learning new recipes and more about Mexican food and cooking. Kris is charming, approachable and informative and we enjoyed the company of three other, friendly students. We started with a terrific tour of the colorful food market bursting with fresh flowers, fruits and vegetables. We stopped at a few... More

My husband and I have been able to do quite a bit of traveling in the past few years, and we have discovered that taking a cooking class, especially one that takes you to the local markets with the leader andante their home is a perfect way to "get behind the doors" and into local homes. We were lucky to... More

The setting was in the chefs Mexican Casa in the heart of a beautiful San Miguel de Allende which itself is a beautiful world heritage sight in the centre of Mexico. The chef had cooking talent as well as the skills to... More

Last month my husband and I joined good friends for a terrific cooking class at La Cocina with chef, Kris Rudolph. Our cooking group was lively and fun - everyone was invited to participate in the preparation of a "Traditional Mexican Cuisine" dinner, which was absolutely delicious! Ms. Rudolph's expertise and charm are exceptional. I could not recommend her cooking... More

I had a great time in Kris's Mexican Fusion cooking class. The menu was just delicious, and I plan to make the whole meal for friends when I get home. I also learned a lot about the history of Mexican cuisine and ingredients, so the class was educational on several fronts. Oh and getting to eat the food--with a terrific... More

As the fourth generation owner of a 127 year old restaurant in NYC I never write reviews. This class was so terrific that I must shout about it. Kris' cooking techniques and historical knowledge of ingredients and methods were both informative and entertaining. Her anecdotes and sense of humor made me come back for a second class the following week.... More
