Okay... just like photos of the Swiss Alps don’t do them justice, words can’t describe (at least better than all the other great reviews!) the wonderful day we spent with Esperanza! If we return to Oaxaca, it will be to repeat this awesome experience!!!

We shared Esperanza's kitchen with new friends from Ireland/Australia, the UK, and Texas. She has taken over the teaching from Agustin, who is still recovering from an accident. Over the course of 6+ hours we a) bought food in the markets; b) prepped and ate...More

By Mexican standards this class is probably a five star. However, if you're terribly overweight, you probably won't make it up the very narrow spiral staircase to the class area. The kitchen is small and Esperanza does all the cooking. The food is five star...More

We had an amazing experience with Esperanza, Agustin and Blanca. We made a wide variety of Oaxacan cuisine with detailed description of each step of the multiple dishes. The education we received was immeasurable and the amount we ingested was overwhelming! But so very worth...More

An absolutely amazing experience with an absolutely fantastic teacher (Esperanza) who is very knowledgable and an amazing chef. The small number in the class allowed you to really have a go at every dish and allowed for hands on teaching. We got to make 2...More

Thoroughly enjoyed this class from the market orientation / tour, to making various salsas, tortillas, Tlayudas and Empanadas, and the grand finale, Chicken in Mole Negro. Although there is nothing fancy about the kitchen, it is a very well thought out and relaxing learning environment!...More
