Amazing food and spectacular teacher!

The market was very cool to see, and the food we made was delicious. Eduardo was the highlight of the experience though. He was funny, made us feel very comfortable, gave us amazing encouragement, and was a spectacular teacher. Highly recommend everybody take a class with him!

Thank you David for taking the Cooking Class in Mexico City! You are right, Chef Eduardo is a really good Teacher and very passionate about Mexican food and culture.
Fantastic food, great instruction in Mexican fine dining
, Oct 2021
I've started to sign up for local cooking classes when I travel a few years ago, and I have to say that Eduardo and Gael at Mexican Food Tours have been my favorite instructors. Eduardo has a deep pedigree in fine dining but has adapted very well to working with amateur cooks. Gael is always on hand to help out as well. The class started with a visit to the local food market, where Eduardo seemed to know everyone. He provided some helpful instruction on how to choose ingredients, and made sure we tasted and smelled the ones that would be unusual to US and Canadian residents. After getting the supplies, we returned to the apartment where the class is held and worked on putting the meal together. Eduardo assigned individual tasks, but also made sure that we all had a chance to try to do some of the most important tasks for Mexican dining. A word of warning: making a tortilla is a lot harder than it looks, and Eduardo will not let you ear until you make a perfect tortilla. Speaking of eating: the food was exceptional, and a lot of that is because of the behind the scenes help that Eduardo and Gael provided. This ended up being a foodie weekend for me -- including the tacos omakase at Pujol -- but my favorite thing that I ate during my entire trip was the huitlacoche, tomato, and zucchini blossom tacos we made in class. I would definitely go back for another class.

A deliciously fantastic cooking experience!

Chef Eduardo Landa was great! Had a blast cooking with him and his sous chef, and learning a lot about Mexican cooking along the way. We made three delicious courses: tacos, soup ,and chicken mole. Also, I learned how to make perfect tortillas -- something I have failed many times on my own. Thank you Chef!

My boyfriend and I make it a point to take cooking classes in every city we visit, and now they all have to live up to this one! Chef Eduardo is a rock star - he was funny, friendly, incredibly knowledgeable, and he taught us new cooking skills and >>a lot<< about Mexican cuisine. We took this class a week ago, and we're still raving about how much we loved it. Do it!

Top-notch, world class talent

We absolutely loved the experience. Our chef/guide Eduardo was charismatic and adjusted his routine to our skill level. The market trip was full of tips/tricks for choosing produce wisely. Once back in the kitchen, the tips continued and techniques explored/explained. I’m impressed with the whole evening… Can’t wait to do it all again!

What an awesome way to learn the culture and food of Mexico City! Chef Eduardo Landa taught us how to pick the freshest vegetables at the market, shared tips on slicing and dicing and let us fully participate in making a delicious dinner. Plus we got to spend time with a local in a beautiful authentic home to cook and enjoy our meal.

Great time first going to the market, learning about local produce. Then transforming that into a three course meal. Cooked Quesdaillas with salsa, Mole verde con pollo, and Tamales de dulce con pasas from scratch. Tasty and enjoyable!
