Cook, Create & Connect with Us

Bienvenidos and welcome to our Mexican Fiesta cooking class! This evening, we dive into the vibrant world of Mexican cuisine, a celebration of rich flavours, colourful ingredients, and diverse culinary traditions that span centuries. Mexican food is much more than tacos and tequila; it's a complex cuisine that blends indigenous staples with Spanish influences, creating dishes that are as varied as the country's landscapes.

  • Each class highlights a different cuisine/style
  • Popular cultural culinary experiences
  • Mix of simple & sophisticated dishes 
  • Classes capped at 2.5 hours
  • Cooking stations in pairs - cook & plate together (sharing feast) or individual main + dessert

The Class Structure:

  • Two themed canapés & a non-alcoholic welcome drink on arrival
  • Hands-on main course preparation from scratch
  • Dessert prepared by hosts, plated by guests
  • Emphasis on entertainment, education, & connection
  • The Class is open to all ages & skill levels
