Full description
Start your culinary adventure through the flavors of Puerto Vallarta by meeting your guide for the day, an experienced local chef, at a produce market. Ambling through the market, you’ll learn about the ingredients that make Puerto Vallarta’s cuisine a must-try, and pick up stories of life in the bustling harbor town. With some fresh produce in hand, you’ll head to the chef’s house — where preparations for the lunchtime feast will begin.

The cooking class is split between demonstrations and interactive portions, so you’ll be able to pick up some skills to bring the flavors of Jalisco home with you. All dishes are prepared just as traditional Mexican cooks would prepare food for their families — from scratch, with fresh ingredients, and with an eye towards Mexico’s rich culinary history. As you dine on the fruits of your labor, you'll be treated to a tequila and mezcal tasting, rounding out a genuine taste of a vibrant food scene.

The chef selects a different menu for each class based on what’s fresh at the market, and the preferences of those in the class, so you can rest assured that you’ll be cooking up something both authentic and catered to your tastes.
