Enrique and Eri provide a fabulous experience of cooking, culture and hospitality. We did the mole and tamale class. The shopping trip provided a great local adventure and the food we cooked was oh so good. Highly recommended even for those who don't cook!

This was our first cooking class and we had a great time. The best part is getting to go to the local markets and shop for the ingredients. Enrique taught us how to spot fresh produce as well as seafood. We highly recommend this!
