We had heard good things of this restaurant and had heard the nice music many times as we went by, so recently gave it a try. I must admit, I did like the variety of their sauces that were served, however there was little or no explanation what they were. THe place has a reather low light atmosphere, and a... More

Our favorite part of the class was the market tour. Monica took us on a 90 minute walk to and through the market.

My sister and I took Monica's cooking class after emailing her when we got to Zihuatanejo. Luckily we got a space in the following week.

Monica was a great teacher... More

Four of us did a cooking class with Monica and had such a good time. We learned some things we did not know about preparing peppers and we were all treated to a wonderful lunch that we had helped prepare. I will certainly plan to do another class here next time in Zihua!

Had a wonderful experience here at Monica's cooking class. Learned however, one needs to book at least 3 weeks in advance for this class. Was lucky to get in last minute for this. I am going to book in for another class before I return next year.

Took classes from Monica this year and last year. Use her sauce recipes whenever making enchiladas. Like green sauce the best. Loved Chile Rellenos class this year. Can't wait to make them at home.

My husband and I took one of Monica's cooking classes on how to make chilli rellenos. We totally enjoyed the experience. The five different kind of rellenos that we made were super tasty. Muchas Gracias Monica!!! We again signed up for a class next week on how to make tamales. Can't wait :)

As a Holiday gift we recieved two spots at the chile renos class. We spent three lovely hours learning to make 5 different kinds of chills and learning the history behind each. Our hosts were very gracious, the other guest were great company and the lunch (that we helped prepare) was delicious.
