My 3 girlfriends and I recently took a Mexican Specialties cooking class here and it was a wonderful experience. We enjoyed chef Reuben's instruction and loved the ambiance of the classroom. Extremely professional and well organized. We will do it again when in San Miguel!

The only reason I am giving this two stars is because the food was pretty good and the Chef and his assistant were kind and genial enough to applaud their effort. Other than a recipe sheet and knowledge of a few new ingredients we didn't learn anything. I haven't tried any of the other cooking schools in San Miguel de... More

What a great way to spend time in San Miguel! As this was a the off season, we were fortunate to have a private lesson with Juan, our chef, and Pilar, his assistant. We strolled to the local marketplace where Juan introduced us to the unique flavors of Mexico. We tasted exotic fruits and local candies and tamales, meeting fascinating... More

We booked the class thru the Belmond hotel. We had a fun and fabulous experience. The menu was perfect - easy and wonderful and so delicious . Plus - we so much enjoyed meeting and working with Chef Ruben Yanez. He has a great kitchen and gave us so many tips on how to prepare the menu at home. This... More

We had the most amazing and delicous dinner with Reuben! My four kids (ages 9, 11, 13, and 15) and I followed Reuben to the market for food tasting and a tour, and then back to the kitchen for the best meal we had on San Miguel, recipes included. I fell in love with San Miguel all over again!!

We attended several cooking classes this trip and this one was a favorite. The price was fair, the chef was very accommodating and fun to cook with, the recipes were excellent and the meal at the end was fabulous. I would absolutely take a class with Sazon again.
