Alma was welcoming and informative. We had a great time shopping then cooking our meal. I love to cook, but a novice cook would enjoy this experience as well. Highly recommended!

My husband and I attended this cooking class while here on vacationing in Playa. We are so glad that we did! Amazing, fun, and very informative on many levels. Alma, our guide and trained chef, kindly met us at a convenient spot. Then we proceeded via her own vehicle to a few local markets that were located near her home. She delighted us with a wealth of knowledge in regards not only to food, but also a way of life for many people living here in Playa. Later at her home, we were given hands on instructions. We experienced drinks, salsa, rice and a pepper dish stuffed with delicious cheese! This is an experience not to be missed if you love learning about new cultures and indigenous cooking techniques. Thank you Alma for sharing your wealth of knowledge and your kind hospitality. We so enjoyed the other couple we met and cooked and visited with. Thank you again!

Today's adventure was a Mexican cooking class. Chef Alma took us shopping at the local markets for our ingredients, then back to her house to prepare an authentic Mexican meal. We started with a fresh Margarita, made homemade tortillas, the BEST guacamole I have ever had, 2 types of salsa, chicharones, an onion and poblano side dish, beef shank tacos and for dessert, plantain with carmelized goat's milk and cinnamon. What an awesome experience!!!

A girlfriend and myself took a cooking class with Chef Alma and had a wonderful time. She took us to the local produce market, butcher and tortilla factory in her neighborhood. Then went to her lovely modest home and cooked a delicious meal and enjoyed a margarita as well. Learned a lot about Mexican food and their culture. It was a great experience and would do it again. Thank you Alma.
