“Cooking with Claudia”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

I first read about Cooking with Claudia on Zihua Rob's message board. After doing some research and then contacting Linda, I booked a session for myself and 4 friends to cook "Tortilla Soup" during our visit in February. Another lady from the Chicago area joined us. Our tour guide drove us to the basketball court at Los Achotes where we met Alberto, then walked to Claudia's lovely home. Claudia walked us through the steps of making authentic tortilla soup. We all took turns cutting and frying tortillas, blending the ingredients and "stirring the pot". We all walked away with the recipe. It was a great experience - Claudia and Alberto were great hosts! We ended the day a trip to Barra de Potosi where we enjoyed a few drinks and whole red snapper on the beach. Fabulous day. We look forward to "Cooking with Claudia" in 2015.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Thanks, Claudia and Alberto for the delicious meals on our recent trip to Zihuatanejo. We arranged through Alberto to have Claudia come and cook two dinners for us. The food was excellent, the price was reasonable and Claudia and Alberto were pleasant and easy to deal with. We would highly recommend their cooking if you are heading to Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo.

Thank you for your very nice comments about Claudia and Alberto. They normally offer market tours and cooking classes, but Claudia will sometimes prepare a meal for someone who asks. She is a very talented lady when it comes to food preparation, creativity, and teaching it as well. I am so glad you enjoyed your meals. We hope you will return to Zihuatanejo for another wonderful vacation and more delicious food from Claudia.

“Great experience with Alberto & Claudia”
Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

Started by doing a Market tour with Alberto. It was great. He showed us a lot and explained many things. Then we were off to our cooking class. Claudia's program allowed us to pick our dish. She was very patient with us (we cut things slowly ). We had our dish for lunch and it was very tasty. We learned a lot about the local area from Linda which was an added bonus. Great experience.

“Warm and Personal”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

Four of us took Claudia's cooking class this January 2014. Alberto greeted us at Los Archotes by the basketball court and we walked to there house for the class. We chose tamales and all got to have a hand in the preparation. Recipes and hand outs were given. Very warm and kind people, I would highly recommend this. The small class size makes it easy to ask questions and feel involved. After the 90min class we went on to Bara De Potosi for Fish, Cervesa, lagoon tour (50 peso each), and a swim.

Cheers!
