Cooking class with Reyna was an unforgettable experience. Like most of the people who live in Teotitan, we started the day by shopping in the local market for fresh ingredients. We walked back to the house with our baskets full of chilies, squash blossom flowers,...More

Reyna is very informative and warm, making the six hour class educational, fun and, most importantly, delicious. You learn a lot about ingredients, preparation and traditions. I cannot recommend this class enough!

I second all the other positive reviews of El Sabor Zapoteco's cooking classes. Our group enjoyed visiting the village of Teotitlan, shopping in the market there, and cooking in an outdoor kitchen. Reyna is an excellent teacher.
