Excellent Experience with Eren!
Esther_V, May 2023
Can't say enough good things about our time with Chef Eren and this experience! We walked to the nearby market and learned about the ingredients we would be using to make our meal. Then it was back to the beautiful kitchen where we shared in the preparation for a fabulous lunch--including 3 delicious cocktails. Eren explained everything and gave us so much background about Mexican cooking in general. We left feeling full and excited to try some of the recipes when we return. Do not miss this experience!
Mexico City Must Do!

A must do while in Mexico City. Eduardo and Jorge were amazing chef and sous chef. The location, market experience, education and hands on cooking was enjoyable. You’ll learn about the Mexican culture all while cooking an authentic meal.

Delicious and fun way to learn about mexican food and traditions!
Marycarmen_A, Apr 2023
We are a group of 3 friends (2 Mexican and 1 Brazilian who has lived in Mexico for several years and who loves Mexican culture and cuisine). We decided to take this tour to surprise our Brazilian-Mexican friend and celebrate her birthday with this experience. Our expectation was high because the 3 of us know and eat Mexican food every day and I can say that it was far exceeded, because the quality and dynamics of the experience was spectacular. The tour is designed to visit a market, get to know the ingredients and aromas from scratch, to arrive at a very beautiful old Mexican house with a very cozy kitchen and work on very interesting Mexican recipes as a team with the other participants, until achieving the dishes cooked together and close sitting at the table tasting the delicious menu prepared. The super friendly staff, the chef Eren wonderful, explaining and managing to integrate everyone, keeping up with the experience, patient, fun, knows her theme and managed to cook a complete menu in a short time. Everything is very well organized, this allows you to enjoy, live and experience the tour with freedom and confidence in the staff and organizers. The menu is very well balanced, varied, suitable for tourists and manages to surprise locals. I congratulate you for achieving experiences of this level of quality that transmit to the visitor our wonderful gastronomy, hospitality and culture through our cuisine. Our friend was happily celebrated, we learned a lot, we laughed, we had a very pleasant time and we highly recommend this experience for foreigners and locals.
It’s great!

Best cooking class experience
ShannonL, Jan 2023
Eren was a great host and instructor. She was very knowledgeable about pre-Hispanic foods, and how they cooked and prepared their food. She was very sweet and accommodating, and I definitely would take a class another class with her. The food was amazing that we prepared and very tasty. I can’t wait to try it at home. The class was 10 stars.
Incredible activity

If you are clean & care about your food and clean person this not for you
Verne_B, Jan 2023
Please ignore Covid policy in their site does not exist. Chef is weird. Environment dirty , food environment not clean.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Unfortunately this review is very tendentious, untrue and based on hate speech, calling our chef “weird” is discriminatory and racist. This person arrived late, making all of the group wait for him, once the activity began he left after 5 minutes without any notice and, again made the group wait for him, having zero regards for others. We have been running this activity for many years and this is the first time anyone has acted this way. We have the highest standards of quality and cleanliness and comply to our government recommendations regarding the pandemic. Visitors of more than 100 countries have joined us for a delicious and memorable experience. We kindly advice to read others people reviews, for many of them our cooking class has been a highlight in their trip.

Fabulous Food and Experience
Susan_M, Nov 2022
Eduardo’s class was so much fun! We did it with our adult daughter, who doesn’t eat dairy, and we don’t eat red meat. He created a marvelous vegan taco and meatless stew that were both truly memorable. I learned several new cooking techniques from him as well. He is a very knowledgeable and expert chef who seems to truly enjoy sharing his knowledge and passion with others. This a “don’t miss” event if you are in Mexico City!
Fun, Educational, Delicious, Unexpected!
Rebecca_W, Nov 2022
Wow - the chef and bartender were such great hosts. We learned a lot about Mexican culture, experiences real Mexican culture at the market, and the meal we made was FAR from ordinary! It was extraordinary. You can tell this chef knows what he's doing and he did a great job of entertaining us while also putting us to work! I never could have imagined of the dishes we made, which were rooted in Mexican history but felt like fine dining. Bravo!
The best excursion ever!

Karl_R, Apr 2022
We had a wonderful time with Eduardo in a really intimate, lovely location. He took us to the market to learn about the actual ingredients and were delighted to make the traditional cuisine with a small group of travelers. I would highly highly recommend this to anyone, regardless of their cooking abilities. It's a great time - super relaxed, very informative and eye-opening. Eduardo's a great Chef, great host, great teacher.

We learned some new new kitchen skills and more details about a some key ingredients in Mexican cuisine, and enjoyed carefully crafted cocktails with our beautifully plated dishes.
