I can't wait to see the pictures Laura took of my sweetheart and I as she guided us kindly and patiently through the mole recipe! It was amazing to see (and participate) in the process of going to the market, practicing language skills, making the mole and hearing about life as an ex-pat in Mexico. We even made agua de...

We did this fun activity as a work team building exercise and had a terrific time. As described in the other reviews you start at the market purchasing (included in the price) the fresh ingredients and then learning how to cook them into delicious dishes. Laura and Maru were great teachers and their passion for cooking and teaching really come... More

I have taken two cooking classes with Laura, and can highly recommend them. Laura is organized, fun, bilingual, and creative. Both classes began with a visit to the market near her house. The market is so fun that I have returned numerous times. After returning to the kitchen, the members of the class were divided into groups, and we cooked!... More

My wife and I and two friends arranged a class with Laura to prepare a favorite Mexican specialty, chiles en nogada. We met Laura at her house in the center of Querétaro and accompanied her to the nearby Mercado de la Cruz. Although January is not the prime season for this dish, we found all of the ingredients or close... More

I was very fortunate to reserve a private cooking class with Laura and loved the entire experience. We went to the market to buy all the ingredients fresh and then spent the next few hours in her beautiful kitchen learning to cook mole with chicken, sopes and agua fresca. Laura is friendly and a great teacher and provides you with... More

We tried for several days to get in for a cooking class. The phone lines are always busy and they take days to email you back. When we were told the one day we couldn't get in, we asked if they were doing classes the next day and no response. Too bad, because it does sound like an awesome experience.

I had the fortunate experience of being co-located with Laura's cooking school. While I was studying Spanish at QLS, the students were cooking. Every day at noon we would get to try the food of the day! OMG what tastes! Lots of flavored, beautifully presented, and authentic descriptions in both English and Spanish. Everyday the cooking student would describe how... More

We spent a few weeks in Mexico between DF, Yucatan and Queretaro. The most fun was Laura's course in Queretaro, which includes market visits and cooking this extraordinary local cuisine of Mexico. The course can be tailor-made and we chose to do Mexican Dinners, Mexican Fiestas and Mexican Lunch. Each day we would learn food and drinks such as margaritas.... More
