Enrique and his staff did a great job from the market for shopping and lots of information to the actual cooking, grilling and eating experience it was terrific. I would do a class again with him in a heartbeat. One of the highlights of my month in Puerto Vallarta

Our group thoroughly enjoyed the day with Henriques and his family. The cooking class made Mole seem almost easy to do at home. The end result was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the lesson on Tamales and how to prepare the Banana leaves. Making our own tortillas with the tortilla press was so much fun. Of course, the tequila tasting helped with the ambiance. Great experience in a lovely Mexican kitchen.

This cooking tour was the highlight of our trip to Puerto Vallarta. The tour guides, Enrique and Joanna, were very accommodating, personable, and informative and made the experience exceptional. The techniques and flavors we learned about will last a lifetime. Looking forward to more adventures at home with the lessons learned. Will definitely try another class the next time we are in Puerto Vallarta. This is a must do!

What a great day!! Enrique and Eri were fantastic hosts. From the trip to the market, where we watched how they made tortillas.Enrique explained about all of the seafood, meats and vegetables. To going back to his CASA, to make some of the most delicious food we've ever eaten. Sharing a great day and 5 different Tequillas and Mascals with the other participants. An all around great experience. A must do while in Puerto Villarta.
