Overview

Learn how to cook your favourite Mexican dishes, or learn how to cook something you have never tried before, like one of Claudia's own personal creations. Learn about authentic Mexican family cooking- exactly what Claudia cooks for her family.All classes are arranged on an individual basis-tailored specifically for each individual client- the client chooses what to cook, the date & time, and even the location: you can have your class in La Ropa or in Claudia's home in Los Achotes, near Barra de Potosi. Most people enjoy their class in Claudia's home. Would you like to learn about all those different types of peppers? Claudia also offers tours of the Mercado. As well, Claudia is now offering DINNER EXPERIENCE. For those of you who perhaps don't want to learn to cook but would like to enjoy Claudia's amazing talent with food, she is now offering the service of bringing dinner to you in your home or accommodation. This way you don't have to do anything except enjoy eating a delicious dinner! If you think this might be for you, just ask for information about COOKING WITH CLAUDIA-DINNER EXPERIENCE. Please make your reservation well ahead of time in order to avoid disappointment.
