From US$87.00
Prepare an authentic Mexican meal from start to finish with a 4-hour cooking class in Cabo San Lucas. Choose from menus that change each day of the week, shop for fresh ingredients at a local market, then cook alongside a local chef as you learn the techniques and recipes of Mexican cuisine. This 4-hour cooking class includes a hearty lunch, and it’s limited to 8 people for personalized attention from the chef.

Make your way to a central location in Cabo San Lucas, where you’ll meet a guide for a visit to the local spice market and tortillería, where you’ll pick up some fresh corn dough for making tortillas by hand.
Continue to the chef’s home, then prepare a full lunch with a main dish, salsas, sides, and tortillas that you’ll eat hot from the grill. Learn about the culture and context of what you’re cooking, and get tips for reproducing the recipe in your home kitchen. When the meal is prepared, sit down to enjoy what you've cooked.

This was a really enjoyable experience. We really liked going to the shops for the ingredients and then actually participating in the food preparation. We made Margaritas and Chiles Rellenos. Will do again!
