This is a wonderful opportunity to experience Cabo as a local. Issi is a friendly guide and an exceptional chef. Join him for shopping at the local seafood and produce market and learn how corn tortillas are made from start to finish. Then be welcomed into his home complete with professional kitchen and work with others to prepare a local dish. I did Paella on Thursday!

My husband and I tried out this class and we were both so glad we did! It was such a fun experience going to the markets and buying our ingredients, while also learning about the towns history. The food was amazing!! We had the Birria tacos and we’re definitely using this recipe when we get home. Issi was such a great teacher!! I loved all the different techniques he used. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone looking for something fun to do here in Cabo!

What a unique experience this was. We were able to see the Cabo where the locals live and shop. Issi was very personable and was a great host. Even if you're not a cook, everyone would enjoy this cooking class. My girlfriend and I already made tamales here at home, and of course, margaritas! At the end of the class, Issi emailed us a PDF with many local recipes.

Chef Issa is so knowledgeable and gregarious. He took us around to the local markets for fish, vegetables and masa, welcomed us into his family home, taught us to cook Spanish style paella, grilled fish, and shared a wonderful meal with us. We drank margaritas and shared a lovely time with a small group of lovely people.
