A Fantastic Culinary Experience

Alex made our cooking lesson a memorable experience.After an interesting and informative visit to a local Mexican market,Alex taught us some very important techniques for creating a delicious three course meal that we enjoyed together accompanied with beer and mezcal. A perfect end to our trip. I must admit that Alex's recipe for mole with chocolate was the best we tasted in Mexico. Thanks to Alex we were very proud of our creations. My friend and I look forward to recreating this delicious meal for family and friends in the near future. I highly recommend cooking with Alex and Ale for anyone that enjoys cooking and is looking for a unique experience while in Mexico City.

This was such a special experience. Alex and Ale have a lovely home. Ale was not able to attend but Alex made me feel like a welcome friend. The tour of the San Juan market was both informative and delicious. The cooking, the meal and the dinner conversation were all first rate. Highly recommend!

An excellent experience. My friend and I had the best day with the charming young couple in their apartment in Mexico City. They were both so knowledgable and warm and friendly. We visited the San Juan market, which was so interesting. We saw fresh tacos being made, and were allowed to sample them along with other samples as we wandered around the market. The chicken flautas we all cooked along with all the accompaniments were all delicious. Cannot praise our experience enough. Many thanks to Alex and Ale, our hosts.
