A must to-do in Cabo
, Jan 2022
Issi was a great host and led the tour. It was a great experience from the get go - easy to book, solid communication before arrival, and overall just a good time checking out the markets and cooking traditional Mexican food. You will not be disappointed.

Highly recommend!

We had an amazing time with Issi. We visited the butcher, the produce stand and the fish market with him, and he was very informative and helpful in understanding the process of creating the dishes that we would make. Most importantly, we all got to contribute to making the food! We had so much fun and the food was delicious.
Highly Recommend!

This was so much fun! I went on this experience with my mom and grandma - we were all in town for my cousin's wedding. I am vegetarian and our hosts were very accommodating to my diet. Everything we made was delicious and fresh. The hosts were also very informational and fun. Can't recommend enough!
Saucy experience !

Added heritage of the local foods brought life to the preparation and complexity of the wonderful lunch
Wonderful cooking class with special experiences
, Dec 2021
We really loved stopping at the different markets to learn about the ingredients we’d be using. The chefs home was so comfortable and effective for the group to interact and enjoy sharing their home and travels with each other. Our chef/teacher taught us great tricks and was so easy to understand and follow. We look forward to a return trip in the future!

Authentic Cabo in a comfortable setting
, Nov 2021
Carolina, Issi and their mom were incredibly hospitable, welcoming us to their lovely home and sharing delicious recipes! Truly a memorable experience that I would highly recommend to anyone wanting an authentic Mexican meal with local chefs, including shopping at local bodegas. Not only did we learn the difficulties of making tamales, but we shared a wonderful meal with other visitors from around the world. Their newly opened restaurant, Mercabo Gourmet Street Food, should be fantastic! Can’t wait to visit!
