During this hands-on cooking class, you’ll have fun cooking in a terrace and learning to cook seafood dishes like fish ceviche as well as some Mexican gastronomy dishes like shrimp pozole and trout with two sauces (green and red) that you can replicate back home. This class gives you the opportunity to join Local Chef Graciela for a customized experience in her intimate kitchen. You will start with a quick introduction to Mexican ingredients and food history, followed by a hands-on cooking class, and finish with a delicious drink. This is a workshop that connects you with the Mexican cuisine in a very special way.


  • The experience will start by welcoming you with a fruit-based water beverage called "agua fresca" while you learn about the history of Mexican cuisine.
  • Get detailed explanations of recipes and ingredients, then get ready to head to the kitchen for a hands-on cooking experience.
  • Prepare: fish ceviche, shrimp pozole, and trout with two sauces.
  • Afterward, enjoy the meal you've prepared with a pairing of a Margarita, handcrafted Mexican beer or wine.
  • Finish your experience with a high note of hot chocolate and dessert.
