What a wonderful time we had cooking with Claudia, and her wonderful team. The food was great, but the experience was even better. You are welcomed into a beautiful home, you meet fun and interesting people from all over the world. Good food, good company, good tequila, what more do you want? Go you won't regret it.

We had a fabulous time at the home of Claudia and Lorenzo. They were gracious hosts and the food was amazing! We can't wait to try the recipes at home! We highly recommend this excursion as a different and interactive way to learn more about the Mexican culture and cuisine!

“Back again ! !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

This was a rainy day, but it did not put a damper on our fun or experiences. When we arrived, we were greeted by Lorenzo and Budha (the dog), and welcomed into the lovely atrium and then through the house and out onto the back patio. There were four of us, along with about 8 other people. We had time to get to know one another over Mexican Coffee and sweet rolls. This was our second time to visit Can Cook in Cancun and visit with Lorenzo and meet his charming wife, Claudia. Claudia was on her way to Africa the last time we visited, and her sister and niece were the instructors for the class. This time we were shown and also helped prepare four different salsas as well as a traditional Mexican Independence Day meal. Claudia also spoke of the different states of Mexico and the spices and meals that are common to those states - very informative. Lorenzo gave us a little history of Tequila as well as explaining the different types of Tequila - and then there was the Tequila tasting. When all the food preparation was finally completed, we were all seated at a very festive table on the patio to consume our culinary experience. Sangria accompanied our meal. Everything was delicious. I wish I could take Claudia and staff home with me to prepare our meals all year. We look forward to another visit to Can Cook in Cancun on our next vacation.
