The Authentic Mexican Cooking Experience in Cabo San Lucas
Meet Chef Issi and get ready to spend a Fun Cooking and Eating day. The cooking morning begins with a visit to some of the Local Spice Markets for the ingredients to cook the dishes and Salsas of the day, you will also visit a "Tortillería" to get the fresh dough which will be used to hand make your own corn tortillas. After selecting and shopping the produces, we will go to the home of Chef Issi for the hands-on cooking class in a warm and authentic "Mi Casa es su Casa atmosphere" Chef Issi and his family will share with you the most traditional recipes and cooking techniques of México. Indulge yourself into the delicious meals that are crafted by the locals. And the best of all: you eat and enjoy the fruit of your labour. An authentic local family experience!!
ü The food markets we visit are not fancy, these are the places where vendors sell indigenous produces and where the local people go for the original flavors.. ü All our dishes are cooked from scratch. ü We buy all ingredients on the day of the class, therefore all our menues can be modified and we will always be happy to add a second recipe to the meal of the day. ü We pay special attention to hygiene and we observe high cleanliness standards. We purify all vegetables, water and ice. ü Vegetarians, Vegans, Gluten and Dairy Free are more than welcome.
