The chef is great. I learned a ton about herbs and spices I have never used. It was fun as well as educational. They were very accommodating of my pescatarian preferences. Our group came away with some great memories. I highly recommend it. 😀

The chef seems to really enjoy his work. He's lively, full of history, PM info, shares all kinds of tips, and actually co-ordinated 16 women working together in one kitchen. We were a big group, but everyone got to do prep for our menu. The food we made was Delicious! We each took home a small recipe book and an... More

Spent a wonderful day with Chef Salvador who shared his love of his country and food with us. Our menu was based on food from the Yucatan peninsula. We made (and ate) salsas, papadzules (soft tacos with hard boiled eggs and covered with a green pumpkin sauce/mole), sopa de lima, white Mexican rice, Tikin Xiik (marinated fish), and caballeros pobres...

I have been wanting to take a class here for years but as we were always in a resort it was hard to find a day to commit to the cooking class. This time we had 2 weeks and stayed right in PoMo so I booked a class well in advance and was so excited to attend!! This is not... More

I cannot say enough how much we enjoyed this day. We came as a family with my wife and daughter. Chef Salvador is absolutely excellent. He is an excellent instructor and an excellent chef. The quality of instruction was exceptional as was the food. Best of all we had the opportunity to enjoy everything that we prepared together. From appetizers... More

Chef Salvador is energetic and eager to spread his enthusiasm for true Mexican cuisine as well as his passion for cooking. We learned about Mexican history, classical cooking techniques, and the importance of fresh ingredients. The class itself is a nice blend of spectator and hands-on participation. Chef Salvador juggles several dishes in the kitchen being created amongst 8-10 students/participants... More

I attended on September 30, 2015. I was in Cancun for a wedding and I wanted to spend a few days exploring. I had previously done a cooking school in Chiang Mai and had a great experience. I didn't realize how far Puerto Morelos was from Cancun (40min-hour drive), but it was easy to get there and definitely worth the... More

My girlfriend booked this for us. It's run by an American chef with a restaurant in the area. He takes you through some real dishes, from simple, but authentic, Guacamole, but more sophisticated fish dishes. The school is in a small and lovely hotel, it's very informal, friendly and a lot of fun. Recommended
